Jian Ping Gong and Sam Safran join the Soft Matter Editorial Board

Photograph of Sam Safran Sam Safran has been a professor in the Department of Materials and Interfaces of the Weizmann Institute, Israel, since 1990.  He also served as Vice President of the Weizmann Institute and Dean of its Graduate School.  From 1980-1990 he was at the Exxon Corporate Research Labs where he worked on the theory of soft matter with a focus on the structure and phase behavior of oil-water-surfactant dispersions.  His recent research interests have extended soft matter concepts to treat synthetic and biological membranes and cells. 
Photograph of Jian Ping Gong Jian Ping Gong is a professor of the Faculty of Advanced Life Science at Hokkaido University, Japan. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in physics from Zhejiang University, China, and received her Master’s degree in polymer science from Ibaraki University, Japan. She studied high Tc superconductors at Tokyo Institute of Technology where she gained her Doctor of Engineering. She joined the faculty at the Hokkaido University in 1993, where she received her Doctor of Science. Gong presently is concentrating on the research of novel hydrogels with high mechanical performances, such as high toughness, low surface friction, shock-absorbing, self-healing, and the application of the hydrogels as bio-tissues.
