Professor Heather Wallace: New Toxicology Research Editor-in-Chief

We are delighted to announce that Heather Wallace has taken over as Editor-in-Chief of Toxicology Research.

 

Heather is the Professor of Biochemical Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Aberdeen. Her research interests are in cancer therapeutics and prevention, selective drug delivery and the use of biomarkers for diagnosis and monitoring efficacy of anticancer drug therapy. She co-ordinates postgraduate teaching in Clinical Pharmacology, Drug Discovery and Development and Bio-Business.

 

Heather is a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists and is CPD Advisor for Toxicology at the College. She is also a Fellow of the following learned Societies: British Toxicology Society, Royal Society of Chemistry, Royal Society of Biology and British Pharmacological Society. Heather is a member of the UK Register of Toxicologists and a European Registered Toxicologist (since 2006).

 

We recently had a chance to catch up with Heather to talk about her plans for the journal.

 

What are you most looking forward to in your new role as Editor-in-Chief?

I am looking forward to working with the team at the Royal Society of Chemistry and our Editorial Board to develop our Journal even further.  We have had a very promising start but we need to work hard to ensure the submissions continue to rise and that the quality of our product remains high. I particularly would like to encourage early career researchers in toxicology to submit papers to our journal.

 

What are your aims for your time as Editor-in-Chief?

My main aim is to increase our impact factor and raise the visibility of Toxicology Research. As part of that, we need the journal to be listed in PubMed. I would like the Journal to become known for its ‘state of the art’ incisive reviews as well as original high quality papers. Toxicology is a broad church and as such, the journal has wide appeal.  We need to be in a position to capture some of the breakthroughs in Toxicology Research.

 

How do we encourage the next generation of toxicologists?

By publishing great science, we can excite and enthuse the next generation of toxicologists. The Journal needs to be relevant to the broad church of toxicology. I am very keen to encourage themed issues to help those new to the field identify Toxicology Research as source of up to date information

 

Once again, we’d like to congratulate Heather on her new role and we look forward to her term as editor-in-chief.
