Tovah Honor Aronin, Editor
Tovah has been the Editor for BMC Women’s Health since 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 involved in promoting the BMC Women’s Health thematic series ‘The Role of Structural and Interpersonal Violence in the Lives of Women’ and the upcoming launch of ‘The impact of humanitarian disasters and displacement on women’s mental health.’
