Professor Ana Domingos, Fellow and Tutor in Medicine at LMH, has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief for the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism. The journal publishes original, mechanistic studies on the physiology of endocrine and metabolic systems.
Prof Domingos said: "I couldn’t be more enthusiastic about the prospect of contributing to the AJP-Endocrinology and Metabolism. Since its inception in 1898, the AJP has been a scholarly reference in Physiology. The Journal has made several significant contributions to the field of physiology for over a century, having featured publications by Nobel laureates such as Hans Krebs and Henry Dale. Moreover, at a time when women were not recognised as scientists, the American Physiological Society elected Mabel FitzGerald as their second female member owing to her discovery of the effects of altitude on hemoglobin levels. My mission as an Editor in chief is to capitalise on the journal’s rich past to build a brighter future. This will entail globalising its authorship base while paying close attention to diversity, gender and geographical representation."
Alongside this recent appointment, Professor Domingos has also been awarded the 2023 Carl Ludwig Distinguished Lectureship Award by the American Physiological Society. The award honours a world-renowned, distinguished investigator who has made major contributions toward a better understanding of autonomic regulation in normal and/or disease states.
