Eran Gilat is a professor of Neuroscience. Eran earned his B.Sc. in Biology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, his D.Sc. degree in Medical Sciences from the Israel Institute of Technology and his Post-Doctoral Scholarship from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.

Eran is also an avid art photographer, in the past mostly engaged in portraits, and street photography.
