Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky Appointed Editor-In-Chief of Biomolecules

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky has been appointed Editor-in-Chief of the open access journal Biomolecules (ISSN 2218-273X). Vladimir N. Uversky is an Associate Professor at the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of South Florida. He has a PhD in Biophysics (Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, 1991), as well as a DSc in Biophysics (Institute of Experimental and Theoretical Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, 1998).

In addition to being the Editor-in-Chief of Biomolecules, Vladimir serves as a Co-Editor-in-Chief for the “Molecular Biophysics” Section of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS), an Executive Editor of the Biochemistry and Biophysics Reports; Section Editor for the Biochemistry, Biophysics, Molecular Biology Section of the PeerJ, an Academic Editor for Protein and Peptide; an Associate Editor for the Biochimica et Biophysica Acta—Proteins and Proteomics, Current Protein and Peptide Science, and Frontiers in Protein Folding, Misfolding and Degradation; and an Editorial Board Member of more than 10 journals in the fields of protein science and bioinformatics. He was a Co-Founder and one of the first council members (2007–2010) of the Intrinsically Disordered Proteins Subgroup of the Biophysical Society. He also co-founded the “Intrinsically Disordered Proteins” Gordon Research Conference.

Vladimir’s research interests include experimental studies on protein folding, misfolding and aggregation, as well as experimental and computational characterization of intrinsically disordered proteins (i.e., biologically active without unique structures). His work on different aspects of protein physics has received international recognition. Each year from 2014–2017, he was selected as a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher.

We warmly welcome Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky as our Editor-in-Chief and look forward to his valuable input for the continued success of Biomolecules.
