Dr. Alexia-Ileana Zaromytidou (Chief Editor, Nature Cell Biology)
Alexia-Ileana Zaromytidou, Chief Editor of Nature Cell Biology
will provide an editor’s perspective on the editorial and publishing process in the Nature
She received her PhD from the London Research Institute of Cancer Research UK in London, UK (now the Francis Crick Institute) in January 2007. Her doctoral work with Richard Treisman centered on the molecular interactions between actin-regulated transcription factors and their coactivators in the context of MAPK and Rho signaling responses. She pursued her postdoctoral research in the lab of Joan Massagué at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where she studied how different phosphorylation inputs affect TGFβ/BMP pathway activity to achieve distinct biological outcomes. In September 2010 she joined the editorial team of Nature Cell Biology
as the editor responsible for the areas of cancer biology, mechanobiology, cell adhesion, migration and the cytoskeleton, and became Chief editor of the journal in November 2015.
