Tovah has been the Editor for BMC Women’s Health since joining BMC in 2016. Before moving into publishing, Tovah received her Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, USA, where she studied calcium signaling in yeast, developing a novel microscopy probe for real-time measurement of calcineurin activity. An early fascination with Punnett squares lead to a focus on genetics, which then broadened into an interest in the communication and application of scientific research across disciplines. Tovah is an editor for the BMC series blog and is interested in promoting best practices in health care.
