Tal is an Associate Research Scientist at Columbia University in the city of New York, studying cell death mechanisms and drug discovery for cancer therapeutics. Her research focuses on a novel non-apoptotic regulated cell death mechanism recently discovered in her lab, termed ferroptosis. Throughout her undergraduate and graduate studies, she has worked as a researcher in Tel-Aviv University as a joint student in two laboratories specialized in cancer cell and membrane biology. She worked on understanding various molecular mechanisms controlling TGF-β superfamily signaling and receptor trafficking in cancer cells, affecting tumor growth and progression.
