Introducing our new advisory board

We are delighted to introduce our Advisory Board for Digital Discovery!

The Digital Discovery Advisory Board is made up of outstanding researchers from chemistry, materials science, and biotechnology who contribute to the journal as reviewers and writers, provide strategic feedback, and act as community advocates. Learn more about our entire Editorial and Advisory Boards on our website and get to know our newest Advisory Board members and some of their research samples below
