Tissue Engineering Parts A, B, & C: Young Investigator Council

The Editors-in-Chief of Tissue Engineering, Parts A, B, & C and the Chair of the Tissue Engineering Young Investigator Council, Elizabeth Loboa, PhD, invite young investigators and researchers from around the world in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to apply to serve a one-year term on the distinguished Tissue Engineering Editorial Board in 2014. This new initiative will allow young investigators to work closely with other members of the board, establish solid relationships with experts in the field, and gain insight and important experience in the manuscript peer-review process.

Of the pool of applicants, six young investigators from around the globe will be selected to join the editorial board for one year. Upon acceptance, each student will be assigned 5–6 papers for peer review, and, along with the other council members, will organize an exclusive Young Investigator Council special issue. These assignments will encourage the interaction between student and board member, and aims to establish a strong mentor-mentee relationship while building robust manuscript writing and reviewing abilities.
All young investigators are also encouraged to attend the annual conferences of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) and will coordinate closely with the Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS) of the society on events, outreach, and other community building activities.
This initiative is brought forth to further the professional and scientific development of students in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Please see application below for additional details.
