Our in-house editors are PhD-level scientists with research experience. All in-house editors work full-time for the journal to oversee the review process, handle manuscripts as primary editors, liaise with our Editorial Board Members and enforce journal policy. Editors also engage in other activities on behalf of the journal, such as attending and organizing conferences and meeting with scientists at their institutions.
In-house editors work closely with our Editorial Board Members to ensure that all manuscripts are subject to the same editorial standards and journal policies.
Chief Editor: Brooke LaFlamme orcid.org/0000-0003-3010-4209
Brooke received her PhD in Genetics from Cornell University, where she studied the regulation and function of proteases in Drosophila seminal fluid. She then conducted her postdoctoral research at Weill Cornell Medical College before joining the editorial team of Nature Genetics in 2013. In 2017, she left Nature Genetics to become Chief Editor for the launch of Communications Biology. Brooke is based in the New York office.

Associate Editor: Yomayra Guzmán orcid.org/0000-0003-4802-8304
Yomayra received her PhD in Neuroscience from Northwestern University where she studied the molecular mechanisms involved in social modulation of anxiety. She conducted postdoctoral work at the same institution and collaborated with the Translational Genomics Research Institute in Arizona to characterize a genetic mutation responsible for neurodevelopmental delays. As a senior research scientist, Yomayra worked alongside biochemists and immunologists at New York School of Medicine to develop and test novel molecular vehicles that can deliver therapeutic agents inside the neuronal cytoplasm. Yomayra is based in the New York office.
