Haggai Sharon, MD PhD, is a specialist in Internal medicine and Pain Medicine. He is a senior physician at the Institute of Pain Medicine in Tel Aviv Medical Centre and a researcher at the Sagol Brain Institute in Tel Aviv University, where he completed a PhD in neuroscience focusing on disorders of consciousness, and currently leads the Laboratory for #Consciousness & Neurosychopharmacology.

Dr. Sharon's current work focuses on research into what builds the subjective experience of the self in health and disease. He is especially interested in altered states of consciousness, neuropsychopharmacology and the neurobiology of pain, and explores methods that can rapidly change this aversive experience in a noninvasive, brain-focused and patient-tailored manner. To that aim he combines advanced functional brain imaging techniques, pharmacotherapy including cannabinoids and ketamine, noninvasive brain stimulation and brain modulation approaches in healthy individuals and patients.
