STEM CELLS Promotes Miodrag Stojkovic to Editor
Date:7/1/2009

DURHAM, N.C., and CRAIGAVON, Northern Ireland, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- AlphaMed Press, co-publisher of the journal STEM CELLS(R), the first journal in the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine, has promoted Miodrag Stojkovic to Editor.

Professor Miodrag Stojkovic is Deputy Director of the Prince Felipe Research Centre and head of its Cellular Reprogramming Laboratory in Valencia, Spain. He led the team that first announced derivation of pluripotent human embryonic stem cells (hESC) from non-viable early human embryos that had stopped their cleavage. First published in STEM CELLS, this technique and stem cells derived with it are now being used to better understand and fight debilitating diseases.

Professor Stojkovic has long served the Journal, first on its editorial board, then as an associate editor, and most recently as its Co-Editor.

Dr. Martin J. Murphy, STEM CELLS' Executive Editor, lauding the new editor said, "Miodrag is a consummate editor devoted to the publication of the most important scientific and medical advances in this fast-paced and promising research arena. His appreciation for the field derives both from being a leading investigator and as the chief scientific officer of a famed institute with a research faculty and staff of more than 400. Under his leadership the journal STEM CELLS will continue to advance stem cell research and their clinical applications to relieve catastrophic human diseases."

Dr. Murphy also expressed his appreciation to retiring co-editor Donald G. Phinney and retiring associate editor Margaret Baron. "We deeply appreciate the supportive leadership of Don and Margaret and for their devotion to the ever demanding task of keeping up with the Journal's spectacular growth with more than 1,500 new manuscripts submitted annually for peer-review," he said. "We are especially honored and grateful that they both remain on the Journal's distinguished editorial board."
