Dr. Cara Bertozzi is a science and medical writer with expertise in cancer biology, vascular biology, and epigenetics. Her thesis project, for which she was awarded training grants from the Hemostasis and Thrombosis T32 program and the AHA, focused on creating and using genetic mouse models to discover an embryonic role for platelets in vessel development. She further demonstrated that blood flow can molecularly reprogram lymphatic endothelial cells into venous endothelial cells using genetic lineage tracing. As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Bertozzi developed a project focused on understanding the interactions between long, non-coding RNA and chromatin remodelers during oncogenesis. For the past 8 years, Dr. Bertozzi has specialized in helping scientists communicate their findings effectively, providing a suite of custom science communications services, including slide decks, annotated libraries, academic papers, and grants, and ensuring timely, high-quality deliverables. In her free time, Dr.Bertozzi can be found chasing her two young children around the desert in Fort Irwin, CA, or riding her bike.
Education: B.A. in Biochemistry from Eastern University; Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Pennsylvania.
