Peter Faller: New Metallomics Advisory Board Member

We are delighted to announce that Peter Faller has recently joined the Metallomics Advisory Board! Peter is a Professor in Chemistry and group leader at the Institut de Chimie in Strasbourg. His research is focussed on the self-assembly of amyloidogenic peptides and their interaction with metal ions, other (metallo)-proteins and small molecules (aggregation inhibitors/fluorophores).

 

Read some of Peter’s Metallomics articles below:

 

Metal-catalyzed oxidation of Aβ and the resulting reorganization of Cu binding sites promote ROS production

Metallomics, 2016, 8, 1081-1089

 

Use of a new water-soluble Zn sensor to determine Zn affinity for the amyloid-β peptide and relevant mutants

Metallomics, 2014, 6, 1220-1222

 

The role of metal ions in amyloid formation: general principles from model peptides

Metallomics, 2013, 5, 183-192

 

Metallomics is guided by an international Editorial Board and Advisory Board – more information on our board members can be found on our website. We welcome the knowledge and expertise Peter will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with him. Welcome to the Metallomics team!

Gilles Gasser: New Metallomics Editorial Board Member

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gilles Gasser to the Metallomics Editorial Board.

Gilles Gasser was born, raised and educated in Switzerland. After a PhD thesis in supramolecular chemistry with Prof. Helen Stoeckli-Evans (University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland), Gilles performed two post-docs, first with the late Prof. Leone Spiccia (Monash University, Australia) in bioinorganic chemistry and then as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow with Prof. Nils Metzler Nolte (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany) in bioorganometallic chemistry. Gilles then started his independent scientific career at the University of Zurich in 2010 first as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Ambizione Fellow and then as a SNSF Assistant Professor in 2011. In 2016, Gilles moved to Chimie ParisTech, University (France), thanks among other to a PSL Chair of Excellence Program Grant. Gilles was the recipient of several fellowships and awards including the Alfred Werner Award from the Swiss Chemical Society, an ERC Consolidator Grant, the Thieme Chemistry Journal Award, the Jucker Award for his contribution to cancer research and recently the EuroBIC medal for his work on bioinorganic chemistry. Gilles’s research group aims at utilizing the specific physico-chemical properties of metal complexes in different areas of medicinal chemistry.

 

We welcome the knowledge and expertise Gilles will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with him. Welcome to the Metallomics team!
