Professor Orly Elpeleg, one of our shining stars, has dedicated her life to unraveling the cruel mysteries of childhood metabolic disorders. These genetically inherited, progressive—and often fatal—disorders are among the most devastating conditions from which 21st-century children still suffer.

Professor Elpeleg sees every day that the impact of these illnesses affect not only the child, but whole generations of his or her family. Applying cutting-edge genetic technologies to decoding her patients' illnesses, Professor Elpeleg is able to ease their families' pain...and, most essentially. provide the hope of a cure.
