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.

Elena González-Burgos

Assistant professor of Pharmacology and Pharmacognosy at University Complutense of Madrid. Member of the Research Group “Pharmacology of Natural Products”. I obtained my European PhD in Pharmacy in 2012 (Extraordinary Doctoral Prize). I had worked for 3 years in the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices (AEMPS). Expertise in the study of natural products from medicinal plants and lichens as neuroprotective agents, based on their antioxidant properties, against different models of oxidative stress in cell lines of the nervous system (neurons and astrocytes). Author of many scientific publications (25 in indexed journals, 4 in non-indexed journals and 9 chapters of books) as well as communications in national and international congresses. I have participated as researcher in four National funded projects and research stays at prestigious international centers (King’s College of London and Neuroscience Center in Coimbra). Teaching experience at all levels of higher education in Pharmacology, Toxicology and Pharmacognosy subjects as well as experience in Educational Innovative Projects.

Anthony A. Grace

Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience; Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. Involved in translational research related to the dopamine system and psychiatric disorders. Past council member of ACNP, NARSAD Distinguished Investigator, Paul Janseen Schizophrenia Research Award, Efron Award, NIMH MERIT Award, Lilly Basic Scientist Award, Elected Fellow of AAAS.

Peter Graf

Professor of Psychology and Director of the Memory & Cognition Laboratory at the University of British Columbia. Has served in various editorial capacities, and is involved in organized psychology, currently serving as the secretary/treasurer of the Canadian Society for Brain Behaviour and Cognitive Science, and in 2010-2011 as President of the Canadian Psychological Association.

Anita C Hall

PhD in Neurobiology (UCL, UK), two post-docs in cellular neuroscience and stem cell biology (KCL, UK and Karolinska Institute, Sweden), appointed as a Neuroscience Lecturer at Imperial College London, UK and I have recently become one of its first Senior Teaching Fellows.

Diane P Hanger

Reader in Neuroscience at King's College London, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience.

Ziarih Hawi

Dr Ziarih Hawi is a Senior Research Fellow in Psychiatric Genetics at the Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience. Dr Hawi has been investigating genetic predisposition to psychiatric disorders with particular emphasis on the genetic of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). He has successfully identified risk gens for ADHD, narrowed down regions of associations and has functionally characterised some of the ADHD-associated genes.

Elly Hol

Principal Investigator at the Brain Center Rudolf Magnus, University Medical Center Utrecht; Professor of "Biology of Glia and Neural Stem Cells" at the SILS-CNS, University of Amsterdam; Visiting Professor Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience Amsterdam.

The Elly Hol lab is studying the role of glial cells in brain diseases. The overall aim is to elucidate the molecular and functional changes in glia that contribute to the pathogenesis of neurological and psychiatric diseases.

Mike Holmes

Mike Holmes is an Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair in Neuromuscular Mechanics and Ergonomics at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Mike completed a Bachelor of Kinesiology (Honours) and a Master of Science (MSc. Biomechanics) from Memorial University. He obtained a PhD in Biomechanics from McMaster University and completed a one year post-doctoral fellowship from the University of Waterloo.

Combining neuroscience and biomechanics, his work aims to better understand how people become injured at work. The focus of his research program is to better understand work-related upper extremity disorders by identifying mechanisms of injury and pain related to the neuromuscular and biomechanical properties of muscles and ligaments. Using laboratory based techniques, including electromyography, motion capture, electrical stimulation, medical imaging and computer modelling, his fundamental approach leads to workplace applications and investigations.
