The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for the PeerJ journal. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.
Ph.D. University of California at Berkeley 1970. Professor, Dept. Biological Sciences, SUNY/Buffalo, 1987-present
Senior Scientist, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, 1999-2002. International Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses 1986-present
John Bruno is a marine ecologist and Professor at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research is focused on marine biodiversity, coral reef ecology and conservation and the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems. John earned his Ph.D. from Brown University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and was a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University in disease ecology. He is currently working primarily in Belize, the Bahamas, Cuba, and the Galapagos Islands.
Professor of Medicine and Biology at The University of California, Irvine. Formerly Professor, Division of Virology, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA. Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Currently Associate Director of the Pacific Southwest Regional Center of Excellence for Emerging Diseases.
PhD (1994) in the lab of Prof Sir Alan Fersht at Cambridge, followed by postdoc at the MRC Centre Cambridge, making contributions to the understanding of protein stability, molecular recognition and the action of molecular chaperones. I relocated to Monash University, Australia in 2003. My research group uses crystallography, bioinformatics and molecular simulation to understand folding, structure and function.
I am a Senior Lecturer in Ecology at Lincoln University, New Zealand. My research focuses on understanding the processes that structure biological communities. In particular, I am interested in drivers of spatial and temporal patterns in species diversity, such as environment, species interactions, dispersal, and phylogenetic constraints. I work with a wide range of taxa including invertebrates, plants and fungi, in a variety of field and laboratory-based systems.
Professor Bunn is the Director of the Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University in Brisbane. His major research interests are in the ecology of river and wetland systems with a particular focus on the science to underpin river management, and he has published widely on this topic.
I am currently a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls, based at the University of Adelaide. I undertook my PhD at the John Innes Centre, Norwich. My expertise is in the areas of plant molecular biology particularly as it relates to cell wall biosynthesis, re-modeling and degradation and how these impact cereal end use quality. I also have an interest in the development and application of novel experimental methods for transcript profiling and gene discovery.
2002 Radiology Staff at the Erasmus University Medical Center (EMC) of Rotterdam, NL
2005 PhD in Cardiac Imaging at the EMC, Rotterdam, NL
2006 Head of Cardiac Imaging at the Academic Hospital, Parma, IT
2011 Head of Cardiac Imaging at the Giovanni 23rd Clinic, Monastier, IT
2012 UHD-Associate Professor of Radiology at EMC, Rotterdam, NL
Author of ~800 publications: 10 books, 86 book chapters, 273 scientific papers, 235 oral presentations, and 249 posters (h-index = 36; IF >1000).
Assistant professor at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF), Barcelona. Recipient of the 2010 ICREA Acadèmia Award. Former vice-dean, Health and Life Sciences School, Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
Dr. Calhoun is currently Executive Science Officer at the Mind Research Network and Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico. He is the author of over 250 full journal articles and over 350 conference proceedings. His focus is the development of data driven approaches for the analysis of brain imaging data, data fusion of multi-modal imaging and genetics data, and the identification of biomarkers for disease.
Assistant Professor at the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC). Associate Director, Biomedical Informatics Core, Clinical and Translational Science Center, WCMC. My laboratory specializes on the development of approaches and software tools to enable new discoveries in biology and translational research (e.g., RbDe, GPCR-OKB, Goby, GobyWeb, a few others that did not stick). See http://campagnelab.org for recent projects and biomedical focus.
Sandra Morais Cardoso is an Assistant Professor at Faculty of Medicine and is the leader of the group of Molecular Mechanisms of Disease at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Since 2006, she started her independent research and found that mitochondrial impairment causes the loss of microtubule function, culminating in microtubule depolymerization that enhances protein aggregation, via autophagic-lysosomal pathway alteration.
