Rebekah L. Gundry, PhD, MSFS


After obtaining her PhD from the NSF Middle Atlantic Mass Spectrometry laboratory at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine directed by Dr. Robert Cotter, Rebekah conducted her postdoctoral work at the JHU NHLBI Proteomics Center directed by Dr. Jennifer Van Eyk and spent time studying with Drs. Ruedi Aebersold and Bernd Wollscheid at the ETH, Zurich. This hands-on training in the fundamentals of mass spectrometry fueled her passion regarding the application of mass spectrometry in biomedical research and a strong dedication to educating others in the technology.

Since establishing her research laboratory at MCW in 2010, Rebekah has focused on using mass spectrometry to study pluripotent stem cell biology, cardiomyocyte differentiation, and heart failure. To date, work in the Gundry lab has led to the discovery of novel cell surface markers for several human cell types, including hepatocytes and cardiomyocytes, with relevance to immunophenotyping and immunotherapy. Her research is currently funded by two NIH R01 awards and private foundation grants.
