Online speci​al seminar hosted by Dr Shalin Naik - Tuesday 22 September at 11am

Dr Rita Strack, Senior Editor, Nature Methods

"Publishing in Nature Research Journals"


Rita Strack obtained her PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Chicago. While there, she worked with Benjamin Glick and Robert Keenan to engineer improved variants of the red fluorescent protein DsRed, and also studied the chemical mechanism of chromophore formation in DsRed. She continued her research as a postdoctoral fellow in Samie Jaffrey's laboratory at Weill Cornell Medical College, where she developed fluorescent reporters for live-cell imaging of RNA such as Spinach2. She handles imaging, microscopy and probes, along with protein and RNA biochemistry content for the journal.

Rita joined Nature Methods in November 2014.​
