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. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.
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.
Professor, California Institute of Technology. Former President of the Society for Developmental Biology. Former Board of Directors, Gordon Research Conferences (2006-12). Recipient of Senior Woman in Cell Biology Award, 2012
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.
I study the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. I am particularly interested in how non-human primates make decisions, especially about cooperation, and how they are altered based on social and ecological contexts.
I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience at Georgia State University and direct the Laboratory for Comparative Economic & Behavioral Studies. I am on the editorial board of several open access journals.
Regents Professor of Immunology and Infectious Disease. Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Committee member for Annual Review of Animal and Veterinary Biosciences. Former Section Editor for Journal of Immunology. Recipient of the Distinguished Veterinary Immunologist award from the International Union of Immunological Sciences.
Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.
Dunja Bruder did her PhD thesis in immunology focussing on T cell responses to bacterial toxins (1996-1999) followed by a postdoc in the field of mucosal immunology at the HZI in Braunschweig (2000-2006). After several scientific stays abroad (Harvard Medical School; Yale University School of Medicine) she became head of the research group “Immune Regulation” at the HZI (2006). In addition, since 2011 Dunja Bruder is Professor for "Infection Immunology" at the University Hospital in Magdeburg.
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.
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.
