Editorial Board

Caitlyn Cardetti, Editor

Headshot of Caitlyn CardettiCaitlyn serves as an Associate Editor for both BMC Immunology and BMC Biology. Before joining BMC, Caitlyn completed her Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology at Stony Brook University where she studied the role of a novel protein in mitochondrial RNA processing and mitoribosomal assembly. She next had a short postdoctoral fellowship at Thomas Jefferson University where she examined the connection between calcium flux in the heart and mitochondrial genome regulation. Caitlyn is a proponent for science education and literacy. She advocates for lifelong learning, staying informed, and engaging with scientific information in a critical and thoughtful manner.
