An Outstanding and Influential Foundation for a Dynamic, Emerging Field
GEN Exclusive—Breaking News
Bioelectricity, an influential and dynamic meeting place for the rapidly growing bioelectricity community and the peer-reviewed journal of record will be published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Spearheaded by Editor-in-Chief, Dany Spencer Adams, Ph.D., Tufts University, Bioelectricity will be published online and in print with open access options and provide an authoritative, high-profile forum for groundbreaking original research papers, review articles, and captivating front matter, debate, and commentary. A preview issue of the Journal will be published in June 2018.
“We are on the threshold of a transformation in the intellectual and technical strategies used in the biosciences, as ever more researchers begin to explore the biophysical phenomena that act synergistically with the biochemical,” says Dr. Adams. “That makes this an exhilarating moment in the progression of bioelectricity studies from a small specialty to an internationally recognized topic of great significance to biology and medicine. It is also an auspicious time to create a dedicated journal to act as a central resource. I am delighted by this opportunity to coordinate the work of so many talented people as we shape our journal into an outstanding and influential foundation for this dynamic, emerging field.”
Authoritative Associate Editors include Annarosa Arcangeli, M.D., Ph.D., University of Florence School of Medicine, Emily Bates, Ph.D., University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, Mustafa Djamgoz, Ph.D., Imperial College London, Richard Kramer, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley, Michael Levin, Ph.D., Tufts University, Richard Nuccitelli, Ph.D., Pulse Biosciences Inc., Ann Rajnicek, BS, Ph.D., FRSB, University of Aberdeen, and Min Zhao, Ph.D., School of Medicine, UC Davis.
“Bioelectricity is a hugely exciting and multifaceted topic,” says Associate Editor Michael Levin, Ph.D. “Prior discoveries in this important area were distributed throughout journals covering physiology, developmental biology, genetics, botany, oncology, technology, and bioengineering, making it difficult to appreciate the deep cohesion and broad relevance of its concepts. By covering the numerous applications to regenerative medicine, synthetic biology, and even cognitive science, Bioelectricity will become the intellectual center of gravity.”
“Bioelectricity exemplifies our highly recognized prescience and commitment to identify and advance knowledge in cutting-edge fields,” says Mary Ann Liebert, President and CEO of the company that bears her name. “The stellar editorial board of this important new journal ensures its integrity of content and impact.”
