Rebekah Gundry, PhD

Associate Professor

Rebekah Gundry, PhDDr. Gundry received her Honor's Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Marquette University in 1999. She then received her Master of Science in Forensic Science from The George Washington University in 2001, where she conducted her thesis research at the FBI Forensic Science Research Unit in Quantico, VA. In 2006, she received her PhD. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where her research focused on mass spectrometry of biomolecules. Dr. Gundry then moved to the Division of Cardiology at Johns Hopkins for her postdoctoral work, and during this time she also studied at the ETH, Zurich as well as the NIH. During her postdoctoral studies Dr. Gundry was awarded an NIH K99/R00 (Pathway to Independence Award) as well as a BD Biosciences Research Grant Award to support her studies of cell surface proteins in stem cells and their cardiogenic derivatives. Dr. Gundry joined the faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2010. Dr. Gundry received the 2013 Robert J. Cotter Young Investigator award from the US Human Proteome Organization and is currently on the Editorial Board of PROTEOMICS.
