Biography

Anita H. Corbett, PhD, is a Professor of Biochemistry in the Department of Biology at Emory University. Dr. Corbett is a member of the Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics research program at Winship Cancer Institute. 

Education

Dr. Corbett received her PhD in Biochemistry from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. She completed her postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA.

Research

Dr. Corbett's lab study both regulation of nuclear protein import and mRNA processing/export. They have a strong emphasis on collaborative studies that cross interdisciplinary boundaries. They exploit several genetic model organisms including budding yeast, Drosophila, and mice. Much of their current work focuses on understanding the role of RNA binding proteins in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression with an emphasis on proteins mutated in human disease. Current projects study proteins linked to muscular dystrophy, cancer, and intellectual disability.
