F1000 evaluations - new free service for readers

We have reached an agreement with F1000 to make available each month three evaluations of articles from Cell Biology International from the F1000 website. These evaluations help to put the articles in context and provide opinion and perspective from leading researchers working in the field. In addition, we will include the F1000 Factor beside articles that have been evaluated by F1000 from Cell Biology International - highlighting how many of the Journal's articles have been selected and rated as important by the F1000 service.

Two New Co-Editors for Cell Biology International

We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new Co-Editors:

Susan McGlashan is currently Senior Lecturer in the Department of Anatomy at the University of Auckland and her research investigates the role of primary cilia in mechanosensory signalling in normal and osteoarthritic cartilage.

Dr Sidney Siu Bun Yu has been studying the mechanism of vesicle trafficking in mammalian cells. He is a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale School of Medicine studying vesicle tethering mediated by a protein complex called TRAPP in mammalian cells. Dr. Yu's other research interests include the physiological functions of the chloride channel CFTR, the signal transduction mechanism mediated by guanylyl cyclase and cGMP, and the genetics of nematode C. elegans.
