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.

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.

Lydia Jimenez-Diaz

Principal investigator of several projects at international, national and regional level, and has participated in over 20 research projects as a partner. Currently co-director of two doctoral courses on the brain regions associated with memory storage and Alzheimer's disease. Research is focused on the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic plasticity processes in the Central Nervous System.

William L Jungers

B.A. in Anthropology from Oberlin College (1970), Ph.D. from University of Michigan in Biological Anthropology (1976). Faculty member at Stony Brook University School of Medicine since 1978. Emeritus Distinguished Teaching Professor since 2016. Currently a Research Associate at Association Vahatra in Madagascar. My research interests focus on the evolutionary and functional anatomy of primates and paleoanthropology, with a special interest in "size and scaling" and quantitative methods. I've also conducted paleontological field work in Madagascar and Indonesia.
