About the Editors

Chief Editor: Linda Koch, PhD ORCID

Linda obtained her PhD in Genetics from the University of Cologne, Germany, in the lab of Jens Brüning, where she used conditional gene targeting in mice to research the mechanisms of central and peripheral insulin resistance. She continued her research at the Institute for Genetics as a postdoctoral fellow to investigate a knockout mouse model of the obesity gene FTO. She joined Nature Reviews Endocrinology in August 2009, first as Associate Editor, then as Senior Editor and as Locum Chief Editor. Linda became Chief Editor of Nature Reviews Genetics in January 2014. Twitter: @LinkoNRG

Senior Editor: Darren Burgess, PhD ORCID

Darren received his PhD in cancer genetics from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's Watson School of Biological Sciences, New York, USA. There he worked in Scott Lowe's laboratory, using RNA interference screens to identify genetic modifiers of chemotherapy response. He continued this interest in translational cancer research as a postdoctoral fellow with Alan Ashworth at the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre, London, UK, where he focused on synthetic lethality approaches to cancer therapy using DNA repair inhibitors. Darren joined the Nature Reviews team in November 2010.

Senior Editor: Dorothy Clyde, PhD ORCID

Dorothy obtained her PhD from the University of Edinburgh, where she investigated sex-specific gene expression in Drosophila under the guidance of Prof. Mary Bownes. Dot began her post-doctoral career with Prof. Stephen Small at New York University, where she studied pattern formation in the early Drosophila embryo. On her return to the UK, she continued her studies on Drosophila embryonic development, this time focusing on the molecular and cellular events involved in the process of dorsal closure. Dorothy joined Nature Protocols in January 2006 and moved to Nature Reviews Genetics in January 2017.

The editors of Nature Reviews Genetics are based in London, UK.
