Academic Editors

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. Learn more about becoming an Editor.

Emanuele Paci

Associate Professor in Computational Biophysics at University of Leeds. From 2001 to 2004, Oberassistent at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Zurich.

Isabel M Palacios

University at Madrid, Spain; PhD at EMBL Germany; Postdoc at the Gurdon Institute, Cambridge, UK; Group Leader as a Royal Society University Research Fellow and currently as a University Senior Research Fellow, Cambridge, UK. Also a Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge, UK

Antonio Palazón-Bru

I am a Professor in Biostatistics and Clinical Research Methodology in the Department of Clinical Medicine at the Miguel Hernández University (Spain).

My research is focused on biostatistics, clinical research methodology, cardiovascular diseases and pediatrics.

Sean P. Palecek

Professor of Chemical & Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

Francesca Palladino

My lab in interested in the epigenetic regulation of germline identity, and how epigenetics influences the organismal response to stress, using the nematode C. elegans as a model system. To address these questions, we use a combination of genetic, molecular, microscopy and genome wide approaches.

Colin Palmer

An engineer by training with a wide interest in low speed aerodynamics and the fluid dynamics of animal locomotion. PhD topic was the flight of the large pterosaurs. Research Associate at the universities of Bristol and Southampton in the UK.

Anna Panchenko

National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Institutes of Health. Editor, Journal of Molecular Biology; Associate Editor, BMC Evolutionary Biology. Associate Lecturer, Johns Hopkins University

Elena Papaleo

I am leading the newborn group of Computational Biology at the Danish Cancer Society Research Center (DCRC, Copenhagen, Denmark) and I am visiting researcher at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan, Italy). My group focuses on several projects from structural biology, biomolecular simulations and modelling to network analyses and analyses of -omics data and cancer databases. We work in tight collaborations with experimentalists in either cellular/molecular biology, biophysics and biochemistry area. A tight integration of experiments in our simulations or for validation of our prediction is an important component of our projects. I am focusing on different biological topics from extremophilic enzymes, intrinsically disordered proteins, neurodegenerative/cancer diseases, ubiquitination, post-translational modifications, chaperones, transcription factors, metal-binding proteins, DNA damage/repair and autophagy. I have a Ph.D. degree in industrial biotechnology—Biostructure Curriculum (2006, Milano-Bicocca University, Milan, Italy). I worked as Postdoctoral Researcher (2006–2011) and Contract Professor (2010–2012) in Computational Biology at Milano-Bicocca University. I have been also Visiting Researcher at different international research institutes (Tromso University, Norway; IBB, Barcelona, and CNIO, Madrid, Spain). I have been Senior PostDoctoral Researcher at the Structural Biology and NMR group at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark from March 2012 to July 2015.

Lynne R. Parenti

Curator of Fishes and Research Scientist. Past-President, American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists. AAAS Fellow. Associate Editor, Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society. Advisory board, Ichthyological Research. Former Associate Editor: Journal of Biogeography; Cladistics. Editorial board: Species and Systematics, UC Press.

Tanya Parish

Vice President of Drug Discovery at Infectious Disease Research Institute.
Affiliate Professor, Global Health, University of Washington.
Senior Editor of Microbiology (SGM, UK).
Editorial Board for PLOS ONE and Frontiers in Cell and Infection Microbiology.

Lael Parrott
