Gisela Storz is the Deputy Chief of the Cell Biology and Metabolism Program of NICHD. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and then carried out postdoctoral work at the National Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School. For many years, a major focus of her group was the study of the bacterial and fungal responses to oxidative stress. As a result of the serendipitous discovery of the peroxide-induced OxyS RNA, one of the first small, regulatory RNAs to be discovered, work in her lab shifted to the genome-wide identification and characterization of small RNAs in bacteria.
