New FMN Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Neuroendocrinology
The British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN) is delighted to announce that Professor Mike Lehman (Kent State University, OH, USA) will be taking over from Professor Julian Mercer as Editor-in-Chief of the Fundamental and Mechanistic Neuroendocrinology (FMN) strand of the Journal of Neuroendocrinology (JNE).
Professor Lehman is currently the inaugural director of the Brain Health Research Institute at Kent State University and is a faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences at the same institution. He is an accomplished scientist and has made significant contributions to the fields of neuroendocrinology, behavioural neuroscience, and circadian rhythms research. His lab has been continually funded for more than 30 years by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and other federal agencies in the USA and Canada.
Professor Lehman has been a Senior Editor of JNE for almost 10 years, as well as a member of the BSN, and has been closely involved with the journal’s development, including acting as Guest Editor for the recent special issue marking the 50th anniversary of the discovery of GnRH. Professor Lehman will be working with the current Editor-in-Chief of the Translational and Clinical (TCN) strand of the journal, Professor Bob Millar, to further develop the journal’s role as the leading neuroendocrinology journal across the full breadth of the discipline.
Professor Lehman said:
“I am honoured and very excited to be selected as the next Editor-in-Chief of the Fundamental and Mechanistic Neuroendocrinology (FMN) strand of the Journal of Neuroendocrinology. JNE plays an essential role in our field, as a vehicle for our research and supporting our careers. I look forward to working with neuroendocrine researchers from across the globe to expand the scope, impact and reach of our journal, and hope to engage all our community, including our trainees and early career researchers, in those efforts.”
Professor Neil Evans, President of the BSN, said:
“We are delighted that Professor Lehman has agreed to take on the role of Editor-in-Chief of the FMN strand of the Journal of Neuroendocrinology. We are confident that he will be able to build on the fantastic legacy most recently left by Professor Mercer, and will help the Journal of Neuroendocrinology become the premier journal in its field, thereby allowing the BSN to support neuroendocrine research worldwide”.
