The ASBMB 2020 Annual Meeting was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning the Journal of Lipid Research spotlight session featuring JLR junior associate editors now will take place Thursday, April 29, 2:15-3:30 p.m., as part of the 2021 meeting.

The JLR instituted the junior associate editors program to facilitate development of review skills and associated editorial activities. Since their appointments, the four junior AEs not only have been involved with the review process but also have organized a series of virtual issues, highlighting cutting-edge research in the JLR on lipoprotein clearance, sphingolipids, lipoprotein (a) and lipids in transcription.

The JLR's four early-career scientist associate editors are Raymond Blind of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Gissette Reyes–Soffer of the Columbia University Irving Medical Center, Brandon Davies of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine and Rotonya Carr of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.

As co-chairs of this JLR session, we invite you to attend "Lipid Diversity and Disease: Spotlight on Journal of Lipid Research Junior Associate Editors," highlighting their lipid-based research ranging from basic to clinical studies.
