I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Tanya Amanda Camacho-Villegas

Tanya Camacho-Villegas is a Researcher for Mexico in the Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Unit, CIATEJ, A.C., located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico (2014-present). She is a member of the Mexican National System of Researchers level I. She works in recombinant protein design, cloning, and production (batch and bioreactor scale). She specializes in phage display for isolating single-domain antibodies such as vNAR´s or peptide isolation with diagnostic applications. Recently, she used the vNAR as an immuno-carrier for NPs for theranostics applications for breast cancer and glioblastomas as models.
She has received a BSc in Biology from the Science Faculty, UABC (2004) and a Marine Biotechnology MSc in CICESE (2007) focusing on the selection and validation of vNARs with anti-cytokines properties as candidates for TNFalpha and VEGF165 neutralizing in humans disorders.
She has received a PhD in Molecular Ecology and Biotechnology from the Marine Science Faculty at UABC (2012). She received a distinction in the Ph.D. dissertation
and fellowships from CONAHCYT for MSc, Ph.D., and Postdoc studies. She was the leader of four projects related to biotechnology companies. She was the author of patents related to vNAR as anti-cytokines or immuno-carriers for drug delivery.

Kuntal Chatterjee

I am a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA. My expertise includes various spectroscopic (time-resolved and steady-state IR, UV-Vis, table top, synchrotron, and XFEL), mass spectrometric (TOF, quadrupole, ion traps), diffraction techniques, and ab initio calculations to probe structure, solvation and dynamics of biomolecules, aromatic hydrocarbons, and artificial photosynthetic molecules.

Maria Paula M Marques

Maria Paula Marques (October 1960, Portugal) received her MSc in Physical-Chemistry (1987), her PhD (1995) and her habillitation (2018) from the University of Coimbra (Portugal). M.P.M. Marques is currently an assistant professor at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Coimbra, assistant-coordinator of the R&D Group “Molecular Physical-Chemistry” and head of the “Chemoprevention, -Therapy & -Toxicology” laboratory. M.P.M. Marques has authored 140 scientific papers, 8 book chapters and co-edited 3 books. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a member of the Clinical Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy for Medical Diagnosis (CLIRSPEC), the portuguese delegate for the COST Action Raman4Clinics, an associate editor of RSC Advances and a member of the editorial board of Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery.
Her research is centred on the development of metal-based antitumour agents and on the early diagnostics of cancer, using vibrational spectroscopy, including neutron techniques and synchrotron-based methods.

Daniel H. Murgida

Daniel H. Murgida, PhD, is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires, Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences, and Principal Investigator of the National Research Council, CONICET, Argentina. His laboratory investigates structural, dynamics and mechanistic aspects of natural and chimeric electron transferring proteins and redox enzymes, with basic and applied purposes. This includes a variety of heme and copper metalloproteins that are investigated using spectroscopic, electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods in combination with protein engineering and computational simulations.

Sreeprasad T Sreenivasan

Sreeprasad Sreenivasan is an Asst. Professor in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at The University of Texas at El Paso. After completing his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Kansas State University and Rice University. Before joining UTEP, Dr. Sreenivasan was a faculty member at Clemson University (Research Scientist) and University of Toledo (Research Asst. Professor). His research interest is in two-dimensional quantum materials. In addition to probing the fundamental properties, his lab also applies quantum structures with engineered properties for electronics, energy, sensing, and biomedical applications.

Scott L. Wallen

Dr. Wallen earned a B.S. and Ph.D. from the Univ. of Illinois. He studied supercritical fluids at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory using a variety of spectroscopic techniques including NMR, XAFS, Raman and FTIR spectroscopy. The author of over 50 refereed papers his work has been highlighted in Science and C&E News. He has served as a reviewer for top journals and government science panels. Dr. Wallen is currently working in the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Physics at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. His research interests are on the development/implementation of green nanotechnology, chemistry and sustainable processes applied to materials synthesis, remediation, recycling and chemical analysis. Projects converting biomass to carbon quantum dots for sensing and electronics; nanophotocatalytic oxidation of wastewater; and use of carbohydrates (biogenic materials) for nanomaterials preparation are ongoing as are development of microvolume, high-pressure continuous flow systems (HP-CFS) to prepare and analyze functional, sustainable nanomaterials. He recently developed the concept of a circular economy paradigm for implementing university science laboratories which led to an Award for Innovation in 2016 by the Campus Safety, Health & Environmental Management Association (CSHEMA). At the 21st Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference Dr. Wallen won the 2017 Applied Separations Prime Grant for commitment to teaching Supercritical Fluids. In his spare time he enjoys his family, playing music and outdoor activities.
