Angela DeTomaso is a PhD candidate in the Pathology Department at Case Western Reserve University. The primary focus of her research in the Mesiano lab is to understand the hormonal control of pregnancy and labor with the overarching goal of developing therapeutics to prevent preterm birth. After graduating from Michigan State University with dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Microbiology and Genetics, she worked as a science writer at BioReliance where she reported preclinical phase study results to government agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration. While working full time at BioReliance, she completed a Master of Public Health degree at the George Washington University.
