Susan A. Rotenberg
Susan A. Rotenberg received her Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Brown University, RI, USA (1985) where she studied mechanism-based inhibitors of soybean lipoxygenase. Her postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University (1986-1987) and Columbia University (1987–1990) was focused on protein phosphatases and kinases, especially protein kinase C. Since 1990, Dr. Rotenberg has served on the professorial faculty of Queens College of The City University of New York. She conducts NIH-sponsored research on the structure and function of PKC isoforms and pursues the identification and characterization of PKC substrates, especially those that support the motility phenotype in human breast cells. Moreover, she has served on scientific peer review panels for the Breast Cancer Research Program (U.S. Army Medical Research Command), NIH Special Emphasis Awards, and Cancer UK, and she has been a peer reviewer for numerous professional journals such as Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Molecular Pharmacology, Analytical Biochemistry, Oncogene, Molecular Carcinogenesis, and Journal of Biological Chemistry. Dr. Rotenberg is a Member of the American Association for Cancer Research, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Chemical Society.
