ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Journal of Lipid Research will welcome in March its first cohort of juniorassociate editors. The move to recognize the expertise and contributions of assistant professors is the first initiative by the journal's new editors-in-chief, who took office in January.
The four assistant professors, chosen from nominations
"Engagement with the best and brightest young investigators in the lipid field is an investment in the future of JLR," said co-Editor-in-Chief Kerry-Anne Rye.
The new editors — two Ph.D.s and two M.D.s — already have accrued accolades and earned the community's trust. Two are recipients of the JLR Junior Investigator Award. One won the Journal of Biological Chemistry/Herb Tabor Young Investigator Award. Another is on the Deuel Conference board.
Co-Editor-in-Chief Nicholas Davidson said the program's mission is two-fold: "It's demystifying the peer-review process and also teaching what we hope are going to be the next generation of full associate editors."
The new editors also will contribute a new type of article to the journal — commentaries on exciting lipid research published elsewhere.
Here are the new associate editors and their research areas:
