Gemma Alderton

Former Senior Editor, Nature Reviews Cancer, Nature Research

Gemma Alderton received her PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Sussex, where she researched DNA damage and cell cycle signalling pathways and their deregulation in human disease with Penny Jeggo. Having established an interest in cell cycle signalling she worked as a postdoc in John Diffley's lab at the Cancer Research UK Clare Hall laboratories, investigating the control of the G1/S checkpoint signalling in mammalian cells. In October 2006 she moved to Nature Reviews Cancer to continue her broad interest in pathological cell signalling.
