Dr. Rebecca Hall is the manager of scientific communications for The Methodist Hospital Research Institute and has 15 years of experience in cancer and regenerative medicine research. Dr. Hall received her B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and her Ph.D. in Immunology from Baylor College of Medicine. She was an intellectual property intern at Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.C. in 2001, and trained in national standards for hESC procedures and analysis, including legal and ethical governance of stem cell research, at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research NIH Human Embryonic Stem Cell Training Course in La Jolla, CA.
Dr. Hall was appointed to assistant professor in the department of cell and molecular biology at Baylor College of Medicine in 2008. From 2007-2010, she coordinated the Houston-based research team for a multi-institutional collaboration on the development of somatic cell nuclear transfer to generate patient specific stem cell lines for regenerative medicine comprised of Baylor College of Medicine, Stem Cell Source, L.L.C., OB/Gyn Associates, and Advanced Cell Technology. Dr. Hall is an Aspen Cancer Conference Fellow and received the Theodore T. Puck Award for Cancer Research in 2010 for her work on molecular cancer diagnostics.
Dr. Hall is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Medical Writers Association, with training in the AMWA certification programs. She has worked in the field of biomedical communication since 2007, specializing in editorial writing, and web and visual communications and applications. In 2008, she was awarded the lead external editor contract by BioscienceWriters, L.L.C. for the WikiProject Medicine/ Google collaborative project for editorial review of online biomedical articles. She joined The Methodist Hospital Research Institute in 2010 to manage special projects in scientific communications and external relations.
