Thank you for your interest in our editors.
Gregory B., Ph.D.
Greg B. earned a B.S. in Biology and a Ph.D. in Genetics and Molecular Biology in 2004 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His doctoral studies involved the role of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors in male meiosis. He also completed two years of medical school coursework, providing him with a broad context of human biology and pathology. As a postdoctoral associate at Baylor College of Medicine using knockout mice and RNA sequencing, he characterized two male germ cell-specific structures, the intercellular bridge and nuage, and latter's relationship with miRNA/piRNAs and epigenetic regulation of retrotransposons. As a research fellow at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, he identified nuage-associated RNA helicases and candidate genes in male fertility quantitative trait loci. Greg has over 15 years of experience in basic and clinical research using mouse models and scientific writing, including submission of NIH grants. He has served as a peer reviewer and has authored numerous research articles, book chapters, commentaries, and reviews for journals including Molecular Endocrinology, Biology of Reproduction, and PLoS Genetics. He joined BioScience Writers in 2014 and is excited to assist non-native English speakers to overcome language barriers and better convey their work and its significance to reviewers.
