Hi, I'm Pamela Gannon!


I am the founder and owner of Cell & Molecular Biology Online (CMBO), which was started in 1995. My goal is to develop and maintain an online informational resource for cell and molecular biologists that provides links to resources for research, education and community.

I am a Highlights Advisor for Nature Reviews: Molecular Cell Biology. Since the founding of the publicaton in October 1999, I have selected outstanding and innovative web sites that are reviewed in the online and print versions.

I was the original Web Resources Editor of HMS Beagle, BioMedNet's bi-weekly online bioscience magazine from 1997-1998. I developed the Web Resources section for HMS Beagle and was responsible for web resource survey articles, in-depth web site reviews and featured labs. I currently freelance for HMS Beagle, still writing about web resources for biologists.

Other Experience

Lecturer, Bioscience Resources on the Internet course, which was sponsored by the Internet Biologists from 1996-1999
I gave an annual lecture discussing Internet gateway sites and Cell & Molecular Biology Online, using the BioMOO interface.

Writer/Consultant, Current Biology, 1997-1998
I was responsible for web resource review articles for The Spider's Web column in bi-monthly issues of the print publication. I assisted in the editing of other The Spider's Web articles and topic selection.


I received a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from M.I.T. in 1984.

I finished my Ph.D. in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology from the Tufts University Sackler School of Biomedical Sciences in 1992. My thesis research on protein secretion in E. coli was conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Carol A. Kumamoto in the Department of Molecular Biology and Microbiology.

I was an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Chris A. Kaiser at in the Department of Biology at M.I.T. until 1994. The lab conducted research on protein secretion in the yeasts S. cerevisiae and P. pastoris.
