Contact: Kathryn Ryan
New Rochelle, NY, October 10, 2018—To introduce readers to the new journal Bioelectricity and how advances in this revolutionary field are impacting biomedical research, developmental biology, and therapeutic medicine, the Editor-in-Chief led an in-depth, wide-ranging discussion with the Journal’s Founding Associate Editors. The Roundtable Discussion is published in the preview issue of Bioelectricity, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Dany Spencer Adams, Editor-in-Chief, moderated the discussion with the full group of Founding Associate Editors: Mustafa Djamgoz, Imperial College London (U.K), Michael Levin, Tufts University, Min Zhao, University of California Davis (Hayward, CA), Ann Rajnicek, University of Aberdeen (Scotland), Richard Nuccitelli, Pulse Biosciences (Davis, CA), Annarosa Arcangeli, Universitá degli Studi di Firenze (Florene, Italy), Richard Kramer University of California (Berkeley), and Emily Bates University of Colorado (Denver).
In the Roundtable entitled “The Bioelectricity Revolution: A Discussion Among the Founding Association Editors,” each discussant provided a brief overview of how they became involved in the field of bioelectricity and the current focus of their research and clinical efforts. The editors bring varied skills and experience to the new journal, with interest and expertise ranging in areas from the use of bioelectricity in wound healing and tissue regeneration to electrical signals generated by cancer cells, how cells communicate using bioelectric signals, and how this can be used to develop therapeutic strategies. They also discussed the use of pulsed electrical fields to treat tumors and skin lesions, and the use of light to manipulate ion channels, for example in the eye to restore light sensitivity.
The Roundtable Discussion progressed to the importance of having the new journal Bioelectricity and the purpose, goals, and contributions of the Journal. The Associate Editors, led by Dr. Adams, talked about the role of the new journal, the importance of education in bioelectricity, and the need to discuss and promote the technology and tools needed to study and implement bioelectricity.
“This impressive group of researchers has committed to Bioelectricity and its central role in the future of bioelectricity as a foundational subject. Their enthusiasm and willingness to do even more on behalf of the field will ensure the success of the Journal while building a solid launchpad for the field,” says Dany Spencer Adams, Editor-in-Chief of Bioelectricity, from Tufts University, Medford, MA.
