Academic Editors

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.

Vania M.M. Braga

Vania Braga's research interests include understanding the signalling pathways required for epithelial specification and how these processes are subverted during diseases and tumour progression. She is Deputy-Head of the Molecular Medicine Section, and was appointed Campus Director for the Faculty of Medicine (2012-2015). Dr. Braga participates in a number of editorial boards, review panels and grant committees in Europe.

Since 2004 Dr. Brambilla is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Udine, Italy. He co-authored more than 140 scientific peer-reviewed papers. His current lifetime h-index is 35.

Vincenzo Brancaleone

Dr Vincenzo Brancaleone is Assistant Professor of Pharmacology, Dept. of Science, University of Basilicata.

He performs reviewer activity for international relevant and impacted scientific journal: Mediators of Inflammation (IF:3.263), British Journal of Pharmacology (IF:4.409), Inflammation Research (IF:2.109), Diabetes & Vascular Disease Research (IF:2.116), FasebJ (IF:5.299)

Dr. Brancaleone main research field includes: 1) vascular biology in vivo and in vitro in physiopathological conditions related to gaseous mediators: role of nitric oxide (NO) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S); 2) role of sphingosine-1-kinase/sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1PK/S1P) pathway in vascular, respiratory and inflammatory processes;
3) role of Annexin A1 and its receptor (Formylated Peptide Receptor 2, FPR2) in resolving mechanism in inflammation.

Dr. Brancaleone is full member of British Pharmacological Society (BPS) and Italian Society of Pharmacology (SIF).

Jon Brock

I was awarded my PhD in Psychology from Warwick University in 2003. My PhD topic was language and memory in Williams syndrome. I then completed a short post-doc at Bristol Uni investigating similar issues in Down syndrome, followed by a post-doc at Oxford investigating eye-movements in autism. Since 2007 I have been a research fellow at Macquarie University. My current research uses magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate the neural basis of language and auditory processing in autism.

Eoin L. Brodie

Eoin Brodie is a Senior Scientist in the Ecology Department of Berkeley Lab’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Area (EESA). Dr. Brodie serves as the Deputy Director of the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division, Program Domain Lead for Environmental and Biological Systems Sciences and co-lead of the labwide Microbes-to-Biomes initiative. At the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Brodie is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management. He obtained his Ph.D. from University College Dublin in Ireland and joined LBNL following postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley.

Saverio Brogna

Lecturer and principal investigator at the School of Biosciences of the University of Birmingham, UK. Interested in eukaryotic gene expression and particularly in understanding the links between RNA processing and translation.

At present his group research focuses on understanding nonsense mediated mRNA decay (NMD) and its links with pre-mRNA splicing.

Paul S. Brookes

Associate Professor of Anesthesiology at University of Rochester Medical Center. PhD in Biochemistry from Cambridge University (UK) and post-doctoral training at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Research program in mitochondria, cardiac ischemia, and cardioprotective therapies.
