Scientific Editor Profile
Thank you for your interest in our editors.
Gabriela D., Ph.D.
Gabriela earned a Ph.D. in developmental biology from Baylor College of Medicine, where she identified a novel regulator of the mTOR signaling pathway through a Drosophila melanogaster screen for genes involved in neuronal development, function, and maintenance. Her research experience prior to graduate school includes deciphering the mechanisms of neuronal development and neurodegeneration using various model organisms, studying the venom of marine cone snails, and optimizing diagnostic assays for immune deficiency disorders. Gabriela has published original research in journals such as Developmental Cell, PLoS Biology, Nature Cell Biology, Cell, and Science. She enjoys editing manuscripts and helping fellow scientists convey their scientific ideas more clearly.
