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.

Carlos Gutiérrez

Carlos Gutiérrez, DVM (Córdoba, 1986), diplomate in Public Health (Madrid, 1988), PhD (Las Palmas, 1995), Master in Public Health (Las Palmas, 2003), University Expert in Biostatistics (Madrid, 2006), diplomate European College Small Ruminant Health Management (-ECSRHM-Brussels, 2013), is currently Full Professor at Research Institute of Biomedical and Health Sciencies/School of Veterinary Science, University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
He has developed several projects, collaborations and training periods in the Institute of Tropical Medicine (Antwerp, Belgium), Swiss Tropical and Public Health (Basel, Switzerlandor) or Vlaam Biotchnology Institute (Brussels, Belgium).
He has particular interest on animal tropical diseases (trypanosomosis in special) as well as biomedical applications of nanobodies (VHH). Currently he is an active member of different international committees like ad-hoc OIE group on non tse-tse transmitted animal trypanosomes (OIE, Paris), Camel Section of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP, Roma) or Teaching committee of the ECSRHM (Brussels) and belongs to several Societies like New York Academy of Sciences or National Geographic Society.

Bill Hooker

PhD = cloning and characterizing potential vaccine antigens from schistosomes; first postdoc = fine details of HIV replication (with David Harrich); second postdoc = best ignored; third postdoc = role of Max network, especially Mnt, in cancer and development (with Peter Hurlin). After that I made HIV POC tests and other diagnostic devices in two small biotech companies. Now I'm a research manager with Canon US Life Sci.

A specialist of systematics of monogeneans and certain parasitic nematodes, also interested in parasite biodiversity in coral reef fish, phylogeny of Platyhelminthes and Nematodes, and land planarians. Curator of the collections of parasitic worms of the MNHN.

Former Editor of “Zoosystema” and “Mémoires du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle”. Currently Editor of “Parasite”, an open-access journal.

Clint D. Kelly

Canada Research Chair in Behavioural Ecology. Our lab uses an empirical approach to examine a broad set of topics in behavioral and evolutionary ecology, with particular emphasis on the evolution and maintenance of mating systems and strategies, the trade-offs between reproduction and immunity, the evolution of sexual dimorphism and sperm competition.

We test hypotheses in the lab and field using North American gryllid field crickets and the weta of New Zealand as model organisms. In addition to our empirical work, we have a strong interest in reviewing and synthesizing the primary literature using meta-analysis, commenting on statistical issues and analyzing scientific practices.

Jessica C Kissinger

Professor of Genetics, member of the Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases and Director of the Institute of Bioinformatics, University of Georgia.

Laura J. Knoll

Associate Professor of Medical Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Associate Editor for Microbiology and PLoS ONE, Pearls Editor for PLoS Pathogens.

Anna-Liisa Laine

Adjunct Professor at the University of Helsinki. Currently appointed as Academy Research Fellow. PI in Centre of Excellence in Research on Metapopulation Biology. Academic editor for PLOS ONE and member the editorial board of Journal of Evolutionary Biology.

Claudio R. Lazzari

Professor at the University of Tours and team leader at the Institut de Recherche sur la Biologie de l'Insecte. Interested on the study of the behavioural physiology of insects, in particular disease vectors, using an integrative approach.

Jay F Levine

Dr. Levine, Professor and interim department head in the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and Professor in the Department of Population Health and Pathobiology, North Carolina State University.

His research work, initially focused on arthropod-borne diseases and in particular Lyme disease. Dr. Levine has also coordinated studies focused on shellfish safety, marine finfish, numerous veterinary health problems in companion animals, and ecosystem health. The work of this laboratory, the Aquatic Epidemiology and Conservation Laboratory (AECL) focuses on some of the most imperiled animals on the planet, freshwater mussels and snails. Dr. Levine, his staff and students have been working to further our understanding of these freshwater invertebrates, develop new diagnostic techniques for studying their health and refining techniques that support their conservation and their captive propagation for the augmentation of remaining populations.

Julius Lukes

Institute of Parasitology, Czech Academy of Sciences (P.I.); Professor at the Faculty of Sciences, University of South Bohemia, Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic; Senior Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced research, Toronto, Canada.

Primary interest is functional analysis of selected mitochondrial proteins of the kinetoplastid Trypanosoma brucei.
