    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Joshua Rosenthal is an assistant professor at the Institute of Neurobiogy, part of the University of Puerto Rico’s Medical Sciences Campus. His research focuses on the process of RNA editing and how it recodes key molecules in the nervous system. Current projects look at how editing changes the properties of ion pumps and voltage-dependent ion channels and examine how the editing enzymes themselves target their mRNA substrates.

    Dr. Rosenthal received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Haverford College. He received a Ph.D. in Biology from Stanford University with Dr. William Gilly as a mentor. He then went on to complete postdoctoral training at UCLA with Dr. Francisco Bezanilla.

    He has over twenty publications in scientific journals and has been supported by both the National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation. Dr. Rosenthal’s research has been conducted at diverse sites including Chile, California, Venezuela, Baja California, Newfoundland, Scotland, the Svalbard archipelago and Antarctica.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
