The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. Learn more about becoming an Editor.
I am an enthusiastic early career scientist with an interdisciplinary training and a strong computational background. My interests lie in leveraging the information hidden in large-scale omics data for better understanding of the mutational processes causing human cancer, for identifying potential cancer prevention strategies, and for developing novel approaches for targeted cancer treatment.
Dr. Veerasathpurush Allareddy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Orthodontics at College of Dentistry - The University of Iowa.
Head of the Graduate School at St George's, University of London.
Research fields include translational research, invasion, metastasis, disseminated tumor cells, transcription, tumor-associated proteolysis, targeted therapy, micro-RNA, molecular staging of cancer. Associate Editor of the International Journal of Cancer, and on the Editorial Boards of: Advances in Medical Sciences, Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Frontiers in Molecular and Cellular Oncology, The Open Surgical Oncology Journal.
Dr Patrick Aloy is an ICREA Research Professor and Principal Investigator of the Structural Systems Biology lab at the IRB. He has a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Biotechnology from the Univ. Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain, and spent six years as postdoctoral researcher and staff scientist at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, Germany. For fifteen years, Dr Aloy has been developing and implementing new technologies and algorithms, applying state-of-the-art methods to specific problems and bridging the gap between theoretical models and experiments in different disciplines. In the last years, he has pioneered system-scale analyses of macromolecular assemblies and networks using high-resolution three-dimensional structures, which has become a new discipline in structure prediction. Dr Aloy has over 100 publications in first-rate journals, with over 9500 citations and remarkable press coverage, illustrating the scientific and social impact of the work.
