Sara brings her love of biology and her expertise in open access publishing to Cell Reports Medicine after five years as a Scientific Editor at Cell Reports. She received her PhD in biochemistry from Western University, where she studied the contribution of the microenvironment to cancer progression. Sara conducted her postdoctoral research in immunology in Toronto, where she focused on autoimmunity and host immune responses to pathogens and tumors. Her goal for Cell Reports Medicine is to bring together scientists and clinicians to foster deeper engagement between these communities and to strengthen the growth and development of both ends of this research spectrum. Sara envisions a broad journal that is inclusive and adaptive in scope, selective in terms of quality, and that has a strong voice that advocates for the societal impact of the work it publishes.
