Immunology Editor at Science

Publishing in Science: an Inside Look

Host: Andreas Bergthaler

Biosketch
Seth is an Associate Editor at Science. His areas of responsibility include immunology, hematology, and host–pathogen interactions. Hailing from Philadelphia, USA, his undergraduate work on lung surfactant proteins was with Michael F. Beers at the University of Pennsylvania. This was followed by a doctorate at the University of Chicago under the supervision of Albert Bendelac on the role of semi-invariant NKT cells in asthma. He then moved to Cambridge, UK, where he studied type 2 innate lymphoid cell (ILC2) regulation and trafficking in Andrew N.J. McKenzie’s group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. This was followed by a six-month stint in Amy E. Saunders’ lab at the University of Manchester. Seth has been the immunology editor at Science since June 2017 and now divides his time between a home office in Leeds, UK and the AAAS International office in Cambridge, UK.
