About the Editors
Chief Editor: Diana Romero, BSc, PhD ORCiD
Diana obtained her PhD in Biochemistry from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain), where she studied the role of TGF-β in cancer progression in Miguel Quintanilla's group. She joined Calvin Vary's laboratory at Maine Medical Center Research Institute (US) for her first postdoctoral project, which was related to TGF-β receptor signalling and prostate cancer. In 2010 she moved to Robert Kypta's group at Imperial College London (UK) as a postdoc. While maintaining her interest in prostate cancer, her project focused on Dickkopf-3 signalling. Diana joined the Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology team in July 2015, and became Chief Editor of the journal in September 2017.
