Congratulations are in order to Associate Professor Ana Domingos on her appointment as Editor-in-Chief for the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism.

Ana Domingos, PhD, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at DPAG and Director of pre-clinical Medical studies at Lady Margaret Hall, has been appointed editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Physiology (AJP)-Endocrinology and Metabolism, published by the American Physiological Society. She will succeed André Marette, PhD, when his term ends in July 2022. 

The Journal publishes original, mechanistic studies on the physiology of endocrine and metabolic systems. Specific themes include, but are not limited to, mechanisms of hormone and growth factor action; hormonal and nutritional regulation of metabolism, inflammation, microbiome and energy balance; integrative organ cross talk; paracrine and autocrine control of endocrine cells; function and activation of hormone receptors; endocrine or metabolic control of channels, transporters, and membrane function; temporal analysis of hormone secretion and metabolism; and mathematical/kinetic modeling of metabolism. The journal also welcomes the themes of novel molecular, immunological, and biophysical studies of hormone action.

Prof Domingos said: "I couldn’t be more enthusiastic about the prospect of contributing to the AJP-Endocrinology and Metabolism. Since its inception in 1898, the AJP has been a scholarly reference in Physiology. The Journal has made several significant contributions to the field of physiology for over a century, having featured publications by Nobel laureates such as Hans Krebs and Henry Dale. Moreover, at a time when women were not recognised as scientists, the American Physiological Society elected Mabel FitzGerald as their second female member owing to her discovery of the effects of altitude on hemoglobin levels. My mission as an Editor in chief is to capitalise on the journal’s rich past to build a brighter future. This will entail globalising its authorship base while paying close attention to diversity, gender and geographical representation."

More information about the Editorial Board can be found on the AJP-Endocrinology and Metabolism website.
