Tzviya Zeev-Ben-Mordehai is an associate professor at Bijvoet Centre for Biomolecular Research of the Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

An expert in cellular structural biology of mammalian gametes and structural biology of membrane proteins. Zeev-Ben-Mordehai has an established track record in multi-modality, integrative structural biology. Applying this approach, she revealed molecular details of the unique nuclear envelope vesicle-mediated transport herpesviruses use (Cell 2015, Cell Reports 2015). She developed a system facilitating structure determination of challenging membrane proteins (Nature Comm 2014, PNAS 2016). Her group combines biochemistry, biophysics, advanced cryo-EM methods and cross-linking mass spectrometry to unravel the molecular basis of fertilization (EMBO J 2021, Nat Comm 2021, PNAS 2021).

Zeev-Ben-Mordehai is a recipient of Wellcome Trust and The Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellowship (2015) and NWO START-UP (2018).
