Dr. Geiger is an associate professor at the department of Human Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University. Geiger completed her BSc studies in life sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She then continued and performed her MSc and PhD studies in the same university studying cancer signaling under the supervision of Prof. Alexander Levitzki. For her post-doctoral training, in 2008 she moved to the laboratory of Prof. Matthias Mann at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried (near Munich), Germany. During her post-doc Geiger specialized in mass spectrometry-based proteomic, developed techniques and applied it to cancer related questions. In 2011, she returned to Israel and opened her independent research group at Tel Aviv University, which concentrates on clinical cancer proteomics.
