Discover BMB, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology annual meeting to be held in Seattle March 25 – 28, will include a session featuring Journal of Lipid Research junior associate editors Michael Airola of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, Luke Engelking of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Renate Schreiber of the University of Graz.

These early-career investigators will share their lipid-based research in this session titled “Into the Lipidome: Spotlight on the Journal of Lipid Research Junior Associate Editors.” 

The JLR junior associate editor program, initiated by Co-Editors-in-Chief Kerry-Ann Rye and Nicholas Davidson, passes along knowledge of peer-review processes and trains the next generation of journal editors. The junior associate editors review original JLR submissions, gain experience with editorial decisions made by associate editors, and organize virtual issues and author review articles highlighting cutting-edge research in the field. Each junior associate is mentored by an associate editor.

The current group of junior associate editors also includes Scott Gordon of the University of Kentucky, Rebecca Haeusler of Columbia University and Judi Simcox of the University of Wisconsin–Madison. They presented their research at the 2022 ASBMB annual meeting in Philadelphia.

I invite you to read the following articles about Airola, Engelking and Schreiber and the exciting research they will present at Discover BMB on March 27 at the Seattle Convention Center:
