Kenneth B. Adler, PhD, has been reappointed as editor of the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology and will serve in this capacity for another three years. Since Dr. Adler's editorship began in 2008, the AJRCMB has increased its impact factor to 5.125 and has reduced its publication lag time to 2.7 months.

"Ken has done a wonderful job, and under his leadership, the AJRCMB has become the preeminent journal in its field," says ATS Publications Policy Committee Chair Roy G. Brower, MD, professor of medicine and medical director of the Medical Intensive Care Unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. "Ken's experience as editor, his very strong editorial team, and his knowledge of biomedical publishing will allow the journal to continue to build on its successes, even in a very challenging publications environment."

Dr. Adler, a professor of molecular biomedical sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University, has also implemented several new features, including the Red in Translation column, as well as initiatives aimed at attracting younger researchers, such as the AJRCMB Young Investigator Award.

"I am thrilled to continue as AJRCMB editor-in-chief," Dr. Adler says. "My colleagues and I are constantly thinking of new and better ways of presenting content and engaging our readers. I'm proud of what we've accomplished, and I look forward to what the next three years will bring."

The AJRCMB publishes translational, cellular, sub-cellular, and molecular biologic research using in vitro systems, animal models, and human cells and tissues. To learn more about the AJRCMB, click here.
