Themed issue on Mammalian Copper Transport and Related Disorders now published

The new themed issue for Metallomics titled “Mammalian Copper Transport and Related Disorders” is now published.

This themed issue, Guest Edited by Professors David Giedroc, Sharon La Fontaine and Richard Burke, marks the retirement of three pioneers in mammalian copper biology, Professors Jim Camakaris, Julian Mercer and Joseph Prohaska.

This issue showcases research on the role of copper in health and disease, the chemistry and structural biology of key copper homeostasis proteins, the development of cutting edge imaging tools and therapies, and the model systems that have helped elucidate the function and regulation of this intriguing and exciting metal in the context of mammalian copper homeostasis.

You can read the issue editorial by the Guest Editors here as well as special editorials by Joseph Prohaska, Julian Mercer and James Camakaris.

Managing Editor, Guy Jones, and Editorial Board chair and Guest Editor of the themed issue, David Giedroc, attended the 10th International Copper Meeting on September 25 – 30, 2016 in Sorrento, Italy and were very pleased to be able to meet with many contributors to the issue as well as Jim, Julian and Joe.
