Dr. Thomas appointed as the Editor-in-Chief of Biological Chemistry journal
Dr. Douglas D. Thomas has been appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Biological Chemistry. His term will begin from January 2021.
Over the past three and a half years, Prof. Thomas has served as Executive Editor on the journal, working closely with his fellow Executive Editors Johannes Buchner, Johannes Hermann, Ming Lei, Stephan Ludwig, Boris Turk and Alfred Wittinghofer alongside the current Editor-in-Chief, Bernhard Brüne.
Dr. Thomas received his B.S. in Zoology at Washington State University, Pullman, WA, USA, and obtained his Ph.D. in Pathology in 2000 from Louisiana State University, Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA, USA. Following his post-doctoral education at the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD, USA, he moved to the University of Illinois at Chicago.
His research focuses on redox biology to expand our understanding of nitric oxide chemical biology and cancer etiology. This comprises epigenetic regulation by NO, consequences of dinitrosyliron complex formation, and the relationship between hypoxia and NO-driven tumor cell behavior.
