Jarrous and his wife Ghada who also holds a doctorate in Molecular Biology at the Hebrew University and now work in his postdoctoral research emigrated to the United States in 1996. Yale was a world different from what was used. I really liked says Jarrous. You are people everywhere, in every corner of the world. He also had a wonderful counselor in Professor Altman, and I was fortunate to join a lab that made exceptional science. After three years in the American University, Jarrous applied an external position in the HU and joined the academic staff as a lecturer in the Department of Molecular Biology in the 2000. It gradually raised its own laboratory and stood on their own, said Kaempfer. Jarrous has prospered in its own laboratory, and his teaching career.

When asked to describe the work that does with RNA, it is easy to understand why Jarrous is a Professor of success, given that it is more patient even with questions Basic. We basically do is to study the flow of genetic information from DNA to RNA to protein, focusing on the transition from RNA to protein. We specifically studied the paths of maturation of RNA molecules transferor (called tRNA) in human cells, said Jarrous. The tRNA is an adapter that can decipher our genetic code which is messenger RNA to protein. We apply Biochemistry and cell biology to look at processing machinery of tRNA molecules in human cells. Nobody knows much about the paths of maturation in human cells. Through our pioneering work, we now know much more about the function of the cell and genetic information?. More specifically of the maturation of the molecules that decode our genetic information.

For those wishing to get to the bottom as to how this research can have uses outside the scientific world, Jarrous is equally succinct. a disease Genetics can affect DNA and thus affect the flow of genetic information. The normal situation is crucial to treat the disease with gene therapy. We do pure research without connection to any medical research, but we are thinking about that in the future. His concession, the prize Ben-Porath, is awarded annually by the President of the Hebrew University in honor of the memory of the previous rector and President of the University, that he died with his wife and his young son in a car accident near Eilat in 1992. Jarrous has also won other awards during his relatively short career. He is a recipient of the scholarship of the Kahanoff Foundation and has won research awards from, among others, the Israel Science Foundation, the U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation and the Foundation Abisch-Frenkel in Switzerland. Jarrous says that she has had the same opportunities to advance professionally than any Israeli citizen. I have never been subjected to any discrimination in my career due to being a professional minority. I never had any doubt in my mind that would end my studies, my doctorate, would go to America and would return and would work in Israel. I have never felt that I were differently.
