The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.
Fulvio D’Acquisto trained in Experimental Pharmacology during his PhD. After his post-doctoral training at Yale University (1999-2003) he joined the William Harvey Research Institute and was awarded the New Investigator Award of the MRC in 2004. He was appointed as Senior Lecturer in 2006, Reader in 2009 and Professor of Immunopharmacology in 2014. He is the Deputy Director of the Centre for Biochemical Pharmacology and Biomedical Research Theme co-Lead for the Life Science Institute.

Dr Martin Daumer: Director of the SLCMSR e.v. - The Human Motion Institute in Munich and managing director of the IT company, Trium Analysis Online GmbH. He is also visiting lecturer for Telemedicine and Clinical Applications of Computational Medicine at the Technical University Munich.
Dr Daumer received a diploma in Physics in 1990 and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in 1995, after having worked at CERN, Switzerland, and Rutgers University, USA.
Senior researcher at IMDEA Food Institute, Madrid-Spain. Fellow of the "MARIE CURIE" AMAROUT Europe Programme.
Senior Researcher (A+, Full Prof. Eq.). Her research focuses on avian oncogenic & immunosuppressive viruses, ILTV, avian poxvirus, avian flavivirus TMEV, and LP AIV H9N2 research; regarding molecular integrations of retroviruses in DNA virus genomes (herpesvirus and poxvirus) in vivo, native epitopes and viruses in feathers and altered biology in multiple infections. ID activities include 144 publications, Natl. and Intl. Awards (AAAP and WPSA), Natl. and Intl. Committees and Editorial Boards.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice President (Research), Flinders University, Australia; previous appointments include Dean of Science at Sydney University and Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Western Australia and the Australian National University. Research expertise in plant biochemistry and molecular biology.
Professor of Biophysics, Bioinformatics and Drug Design at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul-Brazil. Regional Editor for Current Drug Target and guest editor for Current Medicinal Chemistry. My research is focused on biologically inspired models of computing, also known as bio-inspired computing. I also study the problem of protein-ligand interactions, using bioinformatics methodologies such as molecular docking simulations, QSAR, and molecular dynamics.
I am a paleobiologist. My main research focuses on reproductive strategies and macroevolution, particularly on the relative contributions of biotic interactions (e.g., parasitism) and abiotic factors (e.g., climate) in driving these large-scale patterns. Other interests are quantitative methods to study biostratigraphy, intraspecific variability and paleobiology in general. My main tools for these purposes are invertebrates, mainly ammonoids (extinct cephalopods) and parasitic flatworms.
