Dr. Lital Sharvit is a PhD graduate from the Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology at the University of Haifa. She holds a PhD in Cancer Biology for her work in discovering the anticancer effect of mushroom extract on the growth of human pancreatic cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Her research interests lie in the general areas of cancer biology, cancer treatment, and nature-derived compounds; more specifically, the use of mushroom derived compounds for the treatment of cancer, mainly pancreatic cancer.
Dr. Sharvit is a young scientist who invested her MSc and PhD in learning and understanding the effect of mushroom-derived compounds on cancer cells.
Over the past years, Dr. Sharvit has been working on promoting the synthesis of a novel anti-cancer mushroom-derived compound for the treatment of cancer.
