Anita H. Corbett received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry/Biochemistry from Colgate University and her PhD in Biochemistry from Vanderbilt University. She was a post-doctoral fellow at Dana Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School where she first developed an interest in macromolecular transport between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. She joined the faculty in the Biochemistry Department at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA USA in 1997. She is currently a Professor of Biochemistry at Emory. Her laboratory studies macromolecular transport into and out of the nucleus including protein import and mRNA processing/export. The laboratory uses budding yeast to study these evolutionarily conserved processes but also employs both Drosophila and cultured cells.
