Jeanne Nerbonne and Crina Nimigean Named JGP AEs
“We are thrilled with the valuable additions of Jeanne and Crina to the group of AEs,” Eisner says. “They and the highly active labs they lead continue to make significant contributions to our understanding of cardiac and neuronal membrane excitability and ion channel structure and mechanism, so their insights will serve to strengthen our discussions on exciting research submitted to JGP.
Nerbonne is the Alumni Endowed Professor of Molecular Biology and Pharmacology in the Departments of Medicine, Developmental Biology and Biomedical Engineering at Washington University. She is the Director of the Center for Cardiovascular Research, Co-Director of the Center for the Investigation of Membrane Excitability Diseases, and Director of a NHLBI-sponsored Training Program in Integrative and Systems Biology of Cardiovascular Disease. Her research focuses on the regulation of cardiac and neuronal membrane excitability; voltage-gated K+ (Kv) channels; voltage-gated Na+ (Nav) channels; Kv/Nav channel macromolecular protein complexes; cardiac arrhythmias. Previously, she served on the JGP Editorial Advisory Board from 1996—2010.
“It was a great honor for me to be invited to serve as an AE on the JGP Editorial Board,” Nerbonne says. “I have been a longtime supporter of the scientific mission and editorial philosophy of the journal and I look forward to working closely with Editor-in-Chief David Eisner and the other members of the Board to promote and advance JGP.”
Nimigean is a Professor jointly in the departments of Anesthesiology, and Physiology of Biophysics at the Weill Cornell Medical College, and is the 2020-2021 President of the Society of General Physiologists. Her research focuses on ion channel biophysics; structure; mechanism; selectivity; ligand and lipid modulation; membrane interactions; regulatory mechanisms; protein–protein interactions. She has served on the JGP Editorial Advisory Board since 2012.
“I am honored and proud to be one of the associate editors for JGP and work together with the great team David Eisner assembled,” Nimigean says. “Most of my PhD work was published in JGP, including my very first first-author paper, so I am very attached to the journal. I always held JGP in the highest regard, as it consistently publishes high-quality, rigorous, quantitative mechanistic and biophysical work. I hope that I can help keep the torch lit.”
Nerbonne and Nimigean join Eisner and the group of AEs that includes Henk L. Granzier, Chris Lingle, Joseph A. Mindell, Eduardo Ríos, and Consulting Editor Olaf S. Andersen. Learn more about the editors.
