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.

Meir M Barak

I received my bachelor degree (B.Sc) in animal science and my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from The Hebrew University (Rehovot, Israel). I received my Ph.D. in bone biomechanics and my teaching certificate (biology teacher for high schools) from the Weizmann institute of Science. During my Ph.D. my research focused on the relation between trabecular bone structure and whole bone mechanical function. Next, I started a joint Postdoc position at Harvard University's Department of Human Evolutionary Biology (Cambridge, MA) and The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (Leipzig, Germany). There, I did research on extinct hominins bipedal locomotion (Australopithecines) and its manifestation in the structure of the ankle's trabecular bone.

In 2012, I became a teaching fellow at Harvard University and later I accepted a lecturer position. I taught the labs for “Life Science 2” (anatomy and physiology) and my own course - “Bone Biology and Biomechanics”. In 2013, I accepted an Assistant Professor position at Winthrop University (Rock Hill, SC) and started to teach during Fall semester 2013. At Winthrop I taught “Human Anatomy” (lectures and labs), “The Biology of Bone” (lectures and labs), and other undergraduate and graduate courses (both for Biology and non-Biology majors). In January 2019 I accepted an Associate Professor of anatomy position at the College Of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Vet Biomedical Sciences at Long Island University (POST).

Jiang Cui

Dr. Cui is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His research is focused on the development of electrode materials for energy storage applications. He is also interested in applying first-principles calculations and in-situ TEM to study the thermodynamics and kinetics of battery materials.

Sylvain Deville

My background and training is materials science, mostly in the field of technical porous and dense ceramics. My current research interest right now is focussed on freezing pretty much anything I can get my hands on, and see how it applies to domains beyond materials science.

Yu Dong

Dr. Yu Dong is Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering, School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering at Curtin University, Australia. He has extensive research expertise in polymer nanocomposites, electrospun nanofibres, green composites, micromechanical modelling, nanomanufacturing and design of experiments. He is a lead editor for "Manufacturing, Characterisation and Properties of Advanced Nanocomposites", MDPI, Switzerland , and "Fillers and Reinforcements for Advanced Nanocomposites", Elsevier, UK, and a sole editor for "Nanostructures: Properties, Production Methods and Applications", NOVA Science Publishers, USA. Dr. Dong is an associate editor for Journals of Frontiers in Materials (Polymeric and Composite Materials section) and Applied Nanoscience.

Liang Gao

Dr. Liang Gao currently works as a senior Research Fellow at the Center of Experimental Orthopaedics, Saarland University, Germany. His clinical interests include sports medicine, arthroplasty, and traumatology. His research focuses on joint preservation and orthobiologics.

Dr. Gao studied Medicine in China and Germany with intensive fellowship training in both Asia and Europe. He completed the Musculoskeletal Surgical Oncology residency training at Peking University Medical Center, China. Moreover, he obtained his master of science degree (Radiation Oncology) from Heidelberg University, Germany and his doctorate (Biological Therapy) summa cum laude from Saarland University, Germany.

Dr. Gao is the Member of the Basic Science Committee of International Cartilage Regeneration & Joint Preservation Society (ICRS), the Member of the Early Career Investigator Committee of Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), and the Founding Member of the Sino Euro Orthopaedics Society (SEOS).

Kwan San Hui

Prof. Kwan San Hui has over 18 years of experience in the study of nanostructured catalytic materials for energy and environmental applications and has published work in over 230 SCI papers (Scopus; h-index: 56). He has 1 United States (US) patent (US9040007B2) and licensing to 3 companies in Hong Kong.

He has so far supervised 18 PhD and 26 MPhil students, 17 PDRAs and 13 RAs. Many of the ex-members are engineers in the industry and hold faculty positions at Universities in China.

Robert B Smith

I am Principal Lecturer in Organic Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and is group leader for the Organic Medicinal Research Group.

My main research focus is in the area of synthetic medicinal chemistry with much of the research focused towards the development of dyes and probes towards healthcare applications. I am also interested in designing new antimicrobials which is focused around small molecule design. Another area which interests me is the chemistry of ascorbic acid and utilising its amazing properties to generate new medicinally active compounds.
