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.

Javier Alvarez-Rodriguez

My research concerns the influence of nutritional and management strategies on livestock physiology and product (milk and meat) quality (sheep, cattle and swine).

Sharif S Aly

As a veterinary epidemiologist I specialize in dairy cattle infectious diseases and welfare. I received my veterinary medicine degree from Cairo University (1998), practiced for two years before completing the Food Animal Production Medicine Internship at the Caine Veterinary Teaching Center at the U of Idaho, followed by the Food Animal Reproduction and Herd Health Residency at U of California, Davis. I completed my masters and doctoral degrees at UC Davis in Preventive Veterinary Medicine and Epidemiology, respectively.

Vasco A Azevedo

Professor of Genetics and Deputy Head of the Department of Genetics, Ecology and Evolution. He is a member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences and is a Knight of the National Order of Scientific Merit of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Researcher 1A of the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) which is the highest position.

Eric B Bauman

Dr. Eric B. Bauman is an award-winning educational designer and author, and proven researcher who promotes the integration of innovative educational technology for clinical teaching and learning within the health sciences. He is best known for his analysis and synthesis of contemporary pedagogy that supports the integration simulation and game-based teaching and learning across the health sciences. Dr. Bauman's portfolio has been widely published and disseminated through peer reviewed journals, textbooks and conference proceedings. He has presented and/or facilitated well over 100 venues, including the White House and National Academies of Science.

Dorothee Bienzle

Professor of Veterinary Pathology at University of Guelph & President-Elect of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists

Interested in a better understanding of animal diseases and their counterparts in human disease Also interested in developing new tools to investigate animal diseases

Jason K Blackburn

I am an Associate Professor of Medical Geography at the University of Florida. I am jointly appointed to the Emerging Pathogens Institute and I run BSL-3 Select Agent pathogen lab focused on bacteria. I founded and direct the Spatial Epidemiology & Ecology Research Lab, which combines our BSL-3 work with spatial modeling of pathogen habitats, animal movements, and ecological modeling.

Laura A Brannelly

Laura Brannelly is an Australia Research Council Discovery Early Career Research Award Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne. Her current research project focuses on the effects of disease of reproduction in frogs, specifically in species of conservation concern. She hopes to be able to directly use the information generated from her research to further conservation efforts to protect Australia’s declining frog species.

Laura received her a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology and Bachelor of Science in ecology and evolutionary biology from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2010. She went on to complete her Masters of Science in environmental biology from Tulane University in 2011 where she participated in a number of amphibian projects including clinical chemotherapy trials for treating Bd.
Laura received her PhD at James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland Australia in 2016. For her PhD research she explored the interactions between frogs, disease, and the management of critically endangered species. She explored pathogenesis of disease on understudied and endangered species, as well as determining mechanisms of population persistence.
She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh from 2016-2018, where she is investigated the interactions between frogs, chytrid fungal disease, and the environment: specifically, how climate change impacts these relationships.

C. Titus Brown

Titus Brown received his BA in Math from Reed College in 1997, and his PhD in Developmental Biology at Caltech in 2006. He has worked in digital evolution, climate measurements, molecular and evolutionary developmental biology, and both regulatory genomics and transcriptomics. His current focus is on using novel computer science data structures and algorithms to explore big sequencing data sets from metagenomics and transcriptomics.

Andrew W Byrne

Epidemiologist at the DAFM Ireland. My research interests are primarily focused on infectious disease in wildlife and domestic hosts, wildlife ecology and management, and the concept of "one health".
