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.


Dr. Corbett's lab seeks to understand the movement of macromolecules between the nucleus and the cytoplasm with a primary focus on understanding how mRNA processing the nucleus is coupled to export to the cytoplasm to ensure accurate gene expression.
