Angela Hopp is executive editor of ASBMB Today and communications director for the ASBMB. She began her career in print journalism in 2000. She was a news and business copy editor at the Arkansas Democrat–Gazette and then a news copy editor at the Houston Chronicle, in her hometown. After a decade in the volatile newspaper business, she moved into the more stable field of public relations, first as a communicator for the University of Houston's research division and later as a media-relations officer covering engineering, technology and optometry. She joined the ASBMB in 2009 as managing editor for special projects at the Journal of Biological Chemistry, became editor of ASBMB Today in 2012 and became communications director in 2015. In the years since, she has built a talented team dedicated to telling stories about research and the scientists who conduct it. She is grateful for the volunteer contributors who make the magazine possible.
