 Synopsis 
 Prof. Yael Houri-Haddad is an Associate Professor and Acting Head of the department of Prosthodontic in the Hebrew University-Hadassah Faculty of Dental Medicine, Jerusalem. Prof. Houri-Haddad holds DMD and PhD degrees from the Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Dental Medicine, where she also completed an internship in prosthodontics. Her PhD thesis was “Molecular mechanisms in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease”. During 2009-2010 she spent two years in Boston MA USA; in 2009 spent a sabbatical year in Dr. Thomas Van Dyke Laboratory of Periodontology at Boston University and in 2010 was a visiting researcher in Forsyth institute. • Prof. Houri-Haddad research is focused on mechanisms of inflammation during periodontal infection, particularly mouse models and cell-culture studies and immunogenetics. Recently she established a genetic project looking for the genes responsible for  periodontitis susceptibility in a mouse model. This project was funded by a grant from the Israel Science Foundation and the DFG trilateral grant. She published about 50 scientific papers.  • The impact of her research work was acknowledged by several awards, including IADR/Lion Dental Research Award in Microbiology and Immunology, Frank Popper award and Foulkes foundation award. She is a member of various academic committees in The Hebrew University-Hadassah Faculty of Dental Medicine (teaching committee, admission committee, Committee for Supervision of DMD Theses and The Bio-Medical Sciences in Dental Medicine).  At present she is Acting Head of the department of Prosthodontic, Director of the D.
