Director, Colorado State University Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility.
Specializing in metabolomics, natural products chemistry, and plant biochemistry, Mohamed A. Farag completed his PhD at Texas Tech University, USA, in 2003.
Since 2009, Dr Farag has been working as a part time visiting professor at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, to participate in teaching plant metabolomics and chemomterics modelling for master students, and in 2009–2010 he held the Alexander von Humboldt fellowship at the Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry, Germany. Dr Farag now works full time as a professor at the American University in Cairo (AUC) where his research work focuses primarily around applying innovative biochemical technologies (metabolomics) to help answer complex biological questions in medicine, herbal drugs analysis and agriculture.
Dr. Farag has been recognized with several awards, including Abd el Hameed Shoman award (2016), Egypt Higher State Incentive Award (2012), TWAS award in science diplomacy (2014), and the Mass Spectroscopy Performance Award, TTU, USA (2004). For his highly cited publications of 100 scientific papers with close to 3500 citations and an H index of 26, Dr. Farag was selected as a top researcher in the field of plant biology in Africa by the American society of plant biology, USA.
The research of Dr. Mohammed GAGAOUA is focused on the use of proteomics in the field of muscle to meat conversion and the development of fast and efficient aqueous techniques for protein purification. His research interests are at the interface of chemistry and biology with a focus on the use of protein biomarkers quantified by western-blotting, Dot-Blot and reverse phase protein arrays (RPPA) to manage meat quality and also to understand the mechanisms behind meat tenderizing. As a career achiever, Dr. Gagaoua has received the International Meat Science Award in 2015, the ICoMST2018 award by Robin Shorthouse for outstanding contribution to advancing Meat Science and the ICoMST2018 Meat Science award for best presentation. He has published more than 60 publications among them 43 peer-reviewed papers in international journals, 6 book chapters and has more than 40 communications in national and international congresses.
My group conducts research on new analytical methods and technologies, particularly in multidimensional chromatography mass spectrometry and NMR. I also have had a long history of research in metabolomics and the trace analysis of environmental pollutants in complex matrices. Recently I have extended my work to include forensic chemistry and I also have an interest in bringing technology to Chemistry Education. Check out 'Chirality-2' on the app store and Google Play or follow me on Twitter (@dr_oli_jones).
My research interests are in computational mass spectrometry, computational metabolomics and cheminformatics with a focus on structural elucidation of small molecules.
Before submissions to PeerJ Analytical Chemistry I recommend to study the Google Scholar or ResearchGate profiles of fitting editors and submit papers to those editors with similar interests. The submission system automatically guides and helps with that task. If you want to pick (or oppose) me as editor, please make sure to have the Analytical Chemistry subject area selected in the submission system.
For high quality submissions to me as an editor, I promise a fair and supportive peer-review process. That will include guidance how to improve a submission or reasons why I potentially would decline a submission.
I'm currently a PostDoctoral researcher at the Computational Biology Laboratory at the Danish Cancer Society Research Center, Copenaghen, Denmark.
Associate Professor in Department of Chemistry, Iowa State University. Over 25 years of experience with over 80 publications in various fields of mass spectrometry including fundamentals, SIMS, ion mobility instrumentation, and proteomics. Current research interests include MALDI based mass spectrometry imaging of plant metabolites and forensic applications as well as analytical biomass pyrolysis especially with high-resolution mass spectrometry and dopant assisted atmospheric pressure ionization.
Dr Frederic Leusch is Professor and Deputy Head of School (Research) in the School of Environment and Science at Griffith University (Australia), where he teaches biology and environmental toxicology. Fred also leads the ARI Toxicology Research Group (www.aritox.com) at the Australian Rivers Institute on the Gold Coast. His current research focuses on endocrine disruption in the Australian environment, validating ethical alternatives to animal toxicity testing and the application of systems biology methods to evaluate exposure to environmental pollutants. He currently serves on various national and international committees on issues related to the significance of trace organic pollutants to drinking and recycled water quality as well as development and validation of animal alternatives for toxicity testing. He is currently chairing the Water Quality Advisory Committee of the National Health and Medical Research Council, which provides advice to the NHMRC on the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
Interested in metabolomics and genomics of diseases! My current work is focused on generating quality metabolomics datasets leveraging the high-resolution mass-spectrometry (GC-Orbitrap-MS and LC-Orbitrap-MS) and occasionally NMR datasets to combine with other -omics layers such as genomics (transcriptomics, epigenetics), proteomics, and clinical data sets to provide insights in metabolic changes that are associated with human and non-human primate wellness and disease conditions, specifically metabolic syndromes such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Pawel L. Urban received his MSc degree in biology from the University of Warsaw in 2002, and PhD degree in chemistry from the University of York in 2008. He conducted research stays in the University of Alcala, University of Warsaw, and ETH Zurich. The Urban’s laboratory was initially located in the National Chiao Tung University; then moved to the National Tsing Hua University. The team focuses on the development of enabling technologies for chemistry research and clinical analysis, their applications, as well as fundamental studies.
Robert Winkler is Principal Investigator of the Laboratory of Biochemical and Instrumental Analysis at the CINVESTAV Unidad Irapuato and faculty member for the postgraduate programs Plant Biotechnology and Integrative Biology. His research topics include novel mass spectrometry techniques such as low-temperature plasma ionization and covalent protein staining, new approaches in the high-throughput metabolomic profiling of plants, computational mass spectrometry and proteomics.
