Canavan featured in the Biointerphases Journal
December 14, 2018
The contributions selected for this issue demonstrate recent advances toward understanding the biointerface, and as a grouping, give visibility to the impactful work being done by women leaders in this community.
All publications in this issue are anchored by female principal investigators. In addition to technical advances, the principal investigators share advice toward success in science and their career experiences. As a team, we have been inspired by the diversity of the careers and paths of each of our featured researchers, and in the range of activities they take on as part of their fulfilling lives. In this editorial, we share highlights of the personal side of the principal investigators (please see our full editorial online to read their full biographies). Forfurther insight into their technical contribution, please access their individual publications in this issue.
We also are pleased to share our unique situation as Editors of Biointerphases. For the past two years, the three of us have partnered across three continents (North America, Europe, and Australia) to grow and strengthen this journal. We may have been the first and only scientific journal led by an all-female crew of Editors! It has been an exciting endeavor with plenty of late nights and early mornings, but with much satisfaction and many laughs. As the journal has transitioned, we have newly added diversity with our male counterpart, Associate Editor Stefan Zauscher.
We thank the women who have contributed to this issue and we look forward to continuing to highlight work from across our community. Please let us know your recommendations of women who should be invited to contribute to the ongoing development of this Biointerphases Collection. We encourage you to share this special editorial and In Focus issue with your colleagues of any discipline!
