Dr. Eliana was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, the city with the highest concentration of Huntington’s Disease in the world. She became passionate about genetics through her involvement in a school-wide fundraiser to help those affected by this disease. Dr. Eliana graduated from high school a year early and pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemical and Biophysical Sciences from the University of Houston. Upon graduating, she began her post-graduate training at Baylor College of Medicine. In September, 2006, Dr. Teague defended her doctoral thesis, Drosophila Models Reveal Early Neurotransmission Defects and Genetic Modifiers of Pathogenesis Among Huntingtin Protein Interactors.
Dr. Eliana has seven years of experience in bench research, as well as three years of experience in clinical research. She has two first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals. After leaving the academic world, Dr. Eliana spent three years as a consultant in Life Sciences Advisory Services, where she became familiar with the nuances of managing both academic and clinical research.
Dr. Eliana’s unique background provides her with the knowledge to understand high-level scientific research, as well as the technical ability to present that research in an eloquent, audience-appropriate manner. As a member of the American Medical Writers Association, Dr. Eliana has been writing and editing scientific documents for six years. Having grown up with Spanish as her first language, she is also able to readily translate documents from Spanish to English and vice-versa.
On a personal note, in the last year, Dr. Eliana has become a CrossFitter and very much enjoys her CrossFit family. She works from home so that she is able to spend as much time as possible with her four-year-old son and six-year-old daughter.
