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. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.

Tadashi Yamamoto

Professor of Cell Signal Unit, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University. Editorial Board: Genes to Cells, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Protein and Cell, Experimental & Molecular Medicine. Awarded 1987, Princess Takamatsu Cancer Research Fund Prize, 1990 Asahi Prize, 2003 NIH Fogarty Scholar-in-Residence. Former director of the Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo.

Xiang-Jiao Yang

I have been an independent investigator at McGill University since 1997 and a full professor at the university since 2009. The research interests include post-translational modifications, gene regulation, chromatin, cell signaling, mouse development, and human diseases.

Levi Yant

Project Leader at John Innes Centre (Department of Cell and Developmental Biology) and Group Leader at Harvard University (Organismic and Evolutionary Biology). I enjoyed a PhD in developmental genetics in Tübingen Germany, where I worked with Markus Schmid and Detlef Weigel at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology. After finishing my NIH NRSA postdoc at Harvard, I started a group working on understanding adaptation to both environmental and genomic forces.

The overall aim of our work is to determine how evolution finds solutions to difficult problems by leveraging innovative population genomic approaches.
