Eli Pikarsky earned his MD and PhD at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School and was trained as a pathologist at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center. He is a professor of pathology and the chairman of the department of pathology at the Hadassah-Hebrew University medical Center and is a member of the Lautenberg Center for Immunology and Cancer Research at the Hebrew University Medical School. He divides his time between research, teaching and clinical activity. He is the chairman of the research committee of the Israel Cancer Association, a member of the board of the Israel Association for Cancer Research and the Board of European Association for Cancer Research.
His research interests lie at the intersection of cancer biology, inflammation and histopathological studies of mouse models of human disease. The primary focus of his group is understanding tissue aspects of cancer development in mouse models. His studies involve analysis of the interaction between inflammation and cancer cells paying attention to the roles of relevant signaling pathways in particular cell types. Along the years he has elucidated several mechanisms through which inflammation promotes cancer progression, in particular liver cancer. He is also dissecting regenerative and inflammatory processes in the liver.
