Dr. Andrea I. Doseff is currently a Full Professor in the Department of Molecular Genetics College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology, College of Medicine at The Ohio State University. She is an investigator at the Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Heart and Lung Research Institute and a member of the Food and Innovation Center and the Center for Applied Plant Sciences (CAPS). Dr. Doseff received his bachelor’s degree from University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She obtained her PhD from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York working in cell cycle regulation. She conducted her postdoc in apoptosis at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and was the recipient of a NIH Postdoctoral fellowship. She joined The Ohio State University in 2002. She leads a multidisciplinary team focused in understanding the molecular mechanisms of apoptosis in cell fate. In addition, she studies the anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic mechanisms of plant flavonoids and the development of new strategies for target identification. She directs the SiGuE (Success in Graduate Education), a training STEM program funded by NSF. Dr. Doseff is the co-director of the new dual PhD program between University of São Paulo, Brazil and CAPS-OSU.
