Tanya Bondar, PhD

Dr. Tanya Bondar obtained her undergraduate degree in biochemistry from St-Petersburg State University, Russia. She then studied how ubiquitin-mediated proteolysis coordinates DNA repair and cell cycle as a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Dr. Ruslan Medzhitov at Yale University characterized genotoxic stress-induced competitive advantage of p53-deficient clones in the hematopoietic stem cell compartment. Driven by scientific curiosity and broad interests in biology, Dr. Bondar embarked on a professional editor career in 2014, overseeing immunology, immunooncology, cancer pathogenesis, stem cell and microbiome content at Nature Communications and Nature Medicine. As of April 2020, Dr. Bondar has served as the Deputy Editor for Blood Cancer Discovery, AACR’s latest journal.

If you are interested in publishing in Blood Cancer Discovery, please reach out to Dr. Bondar (tanya.bondar@aacr.org) with any pre-submission inquiries.
