Dr. Immanuel Lerner, C.E.O.
Dr. Lerner has extensive experience in
neurobiology, immunology and cancer research
using in-vitro and in-vivo models. Immanuel was
the key in delivering Pepticom's initial in-vitro
proofs of concepts, blocking Toll-like receptor
activation in primary mouse macrophages. He
holds M.Sc. in biochemistry with distinction and
earned a Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, followed by postdoctoral research in
the field of circadian biology.
Dr. Amit Michaeli, C.R.O.
Pepticom's algorithms were developed during
Amit's thesis in the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem. Amit has extensive algorithm
development experience, in both the chemical
and financial fields. Amit currently focuses his
efforts in Pepticom on the development of new
models that define conformational entropy and
models of small molecules based on peptide
Dr. Maayan Elias Robicsek, B.D.O.
Dr. Maayan studied has a BSc. Pharm degree from the
Hebrew university and has 12 years of experience in the field.
She earned her PhD from the Hebrew university in the
medicinal chemistry creating unique databases and prediction
models for Cytochrome P450 inhibitors and substrates.
Additionally, Maayan holds a master in Business Administration (MBA)
specializes in Finance, general and strategic management.
