Experimental Biology and Medicine announces expansion into Asia, opens new office

The Editor-in-Chief of Experimental Biology and Medicine (EBM), Dr. Steven R. Goodman, has delineated a plan for expansion of the journal and enhancement of the activities of the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine (SEBM) into Asia. The plan, which is strongly supported by the SEBM Council, involves bringing outstanding Asian researchers onto the EBM Editorial Board, naming Associate Editors from amongst the leaders in Asian Biomedical Science, and then selecting an individual to become the first Asian Editor for EBM. EBM has added Professor Lin He as co-Associate Editor for the EBM Endocrinology and Nutrition section and Professor Huan-Yao Lei as co-Associate Editor for the Immunology/Microbiology/Virology section. EBM has also added Professors Qingming Luo (Bioimaging), Xintao Shuai (Biomedical Engineering), Huiqi Xie (Biomedical Engineering), Shaw-Jeng Sean Tsai (Physiology) and Chunyu Zeng (Physiology) to the Editorial Board.

Dr. Goodman is now announcing the appointment of the seminal EBM Asian Editor: It is my great pleasure to announce that effective January 1, 2008 Professor Huan-Yao Lei has been appointed to the newly created position of Asian Editor for Experimental Biology and Medicine. Huan-Yao Lei is a Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, and Chairman of the Institute of Basic Biomedical Sciences at the College of Medicine of the National Cheng-Kung University (NCKU) of Taiwan. From 1982 to today, Huan-Yao has published 165 peer reviewed articles primarily in the area of microbiology and virology. He is a leading Asian scientist whose current interests deal with the dengue virus.

A new Asian office for Experimental Biology and Medicine will open at the NCKU Medical Center with an inaugural ceremony on January 7, 2008. Dr. Lei, with his editorial assistant, will play an essential function towards the goal of creating an international presence for EBM and the society (SEBM). Amongst the responsibilities of Professor Lei and the Asian EBM office will be increasing the visibility of EBM and SEBM throughout the Asia Pacific scientific and academic communities. All of the new Asian members of the EBM Editorial Board will play important roles in educating the Asia Pacific scientific community to the value of SEBM membership and publishing their work in Experimental Biology and Medicine. Professor Lei, and his assistant, will also assist Asian authors in crafting manuscripts that have the highest probability of success.

NCKU is one of the largest, oldest, and most prestigious universities in Taiwan. It has 9 colleges, spanning engineering to the social sciences and 22,000 students. It has a powerful College of Medicine which will be the home of our new EBM Asian office. Dr. Charles Lin, Dean of the College of Medicine at NCKU, said the following concerning the establishment of the Asian EBM office at NCKU Medical Center: By establishing its first Asian Office, the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine has built a bridge to the scientific society in Asia and a highway of sharing ideas, news and discovery of health science.

Dr. Goodman stated The establishment of our Asian Editor Professor Lei, and the Asian EBM office, is the first step in our globalization plan for EBM and SEBM. We have begun the process of developing a similar Editor position and office in Europe. In discussing the impact of these announcements upon EBM and the SEBM Dr. Burt Sobel, President of SEBM, stated "Under the vigorous and creative leadership of Dr. Steven R Goodman, the Editor-in Chief of Experimental Biology and Medicine, the journal of the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine, the scope of the journal and of the society itself is expanding profoundly. Two seminal events give credence to the progress being made, namely the appointment by Dr. Goodman of Dr. Lei Huan-Yao as the first Asian Editor for the journal coinciding with the opening of an Asian office that will support Dr. Huan-Yao's efforts and editorial activities of the Journal in Asia on January 7, 2007. Together these initiatives will strengthen the scientific thrust and robustness of the journal thereby enhancing its impact and the strength of the Society throughout the world. We look forward to presenting and widely distributing the outstanding science being undertaken by our colleagues in Asia."
