Aviv Regev is a computational biologist at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and a Professor in the department of biology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology[3] and an Investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.[4]


Regev completed her Ph.D. at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Eva Jablonka[5] and Ehud Shapiro.[6]


Regev's highly cited[7][8] research includes work on gene expression[9][10] (with Eran Segal and David Botstein), and the use of π-calculus to represent biochemical processes.[11][12]

Awards and honors[edit]

Regev was awarded the Overton Prize in 2008 for "outstanding accomplishment to a scientist in the early to mid stage of his or her career".[1] She was awarded the ISCB Innovator Award in 2017.[2][13] She was also awarded the NIH Director's Pioneer Award[when?][citation needed] and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award.[citation needed][when?] In 2017, she was awarded a Paul Marks Prize for Cancer Research.[14]
