Senior Editor
Jennifer Harman, PhD, Springer Nature, UK
New Content Item
Dr Harman is the Editor of BMC Cardiovascular Disorders. Over a 10-year research career, Jennifer developed extensive knowledge of  molecular biology techniques to help elucidate the mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease. From 2011 to 2019, Jennifer worked within the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Cambridge, investigating the molecular mechanisms which underlie Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell (VSMC) behaviour in healthy and diseased vasculature. During her PhD, she worked on the role of a repressive histone modification in regulating disease-associated VSMC genes. After completing her PhD, Jennifer moved to the Royal Veterinary College in London to work on a project investigating the role of a cell surface receptor in regulating inflammatory signalling pathways associated with atherosclerosis. Jennifer actively supports the publication of open and reproducible research. She is based in the London office, UK.

Elaheh Malakan Rad, MD, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran

New Content Item

Dr. Elaheh Malakan Rad is a full-time tenured Professor with nearly 30 years of experience as a University faculty. She works at Children's Medical Centre (Pediatrics Centre of Excellence), affiliated with Tehran University of Medical Sciences. She is the deputy of research affairs at the Department of Pediatric Cardiology of Children's Medical Centre. Dr. Malakan Rad is board certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Cardiology and has a fellowship in Pediatric Interventional Cardiology. Parallel to her work in Pediatric Cardiology, she passed a two-year training fellowship in Medical Education between 2007-2009 at PSG-FAIMER Institute of Coimbatore and a one-year course with a postgraduate certificate in accreditation and assessment in medical education offered by the University of Keele and FAIMER from 2015 to 2016. As the concept provider, she introduced novel classifications for three important congenital cardiovascular diseases:  congenital left ventricular outpouchings, isolation of the left brachiocephalic artery, and congenital aorto-cardiac connections, which are published in peer-reviewed cardiology journals. She has a joint patent registered in the United States Patent and Trademark Office on an asymmetric occluder device for atrial septal defects. She is an Editorial Board Member of Strides in Development of Medical Education and cardiology section editor of the Iranian Journal of Pediatrics. Elaheh is deeply interested in an innovative, integrative and critical thinking approach to medical science

Barry Palmer, PhD, Massey University, New Zealand
New Content Item
Dr. Palmer studied Molecular Microbiology during his PhD at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. The ability to transfer molecular biology skills led to postdoctoral research on DNA methylation and DNA repair in E.coli at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA. This led to research and teaching on bacterial heavy metal and antimicrobial resistance; and metabolism of xenobiotics at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, NZ. Researching the role of gene variants in sheep meat quality and production at Lincoln University, NZ led to Barry joining what is now the Christchurch Heart Institute in 2000 and the focus of his research since then has been on evaluating genetic and plasma biomarkers of prognosis in coronary heart disease and heart failure. Barry took up a part-time academic appointment in the School of Health Sciences at Massey University Wellington, NZ in 2012 and this became full-time in 2020.

Junjie is also an Associate Editor for the Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research, an Editorial Board Member for the Journal of Sport and Health Science, and a Social Media Editor for the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology. He has numerous publications, including articles in Circulation, Circulation Research, Cell Metabolism, Nature Communications, Annual Review of Genomics and Human Genetics, and BMC Medicine. Junjie has also lent his expertise to review manuscripts for Physiological Reviews, Circulation Research, Cell Reports Medicine, Hypertension, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, and Molecular Therapy. Clarivate awarded Junjie a "Global Peer Review Award" in 2018 and 2019 (Top 1% in the field, Publons). His primary research interest is heart failure and exercise training. Junjie uses exercise as a platform to identify novel targets for enhancing cardiac regeneration and combating cardiovascular diseases.

Huiliang Zhang, PhD, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, USA
Huiliang Zhang picDr. Zhang has a solid academic track record and extensive research experience in cardiovascular science, with a strong background in physiology, biophysics, cell biology, and molecular biology. In his Ph.D. study, he worked on molecular mechanisms of heart dysfunction induced by myocardial infarction and hypoxia, especially those involving Ca2+ signaling. In his postdoc training, Dr. Zhang worked on mitochondrial biology in cardiac diseases. As a tenure-track assistant professor, Dr. Zhang’s research focuses on cardiac dysfunction in the aging heart, with emphasis on the pathogenic role of elevated proton leak from mitochondria. He explores the strategies for restoring mitochondrial function and stem cell therapies to reverse cardiac dysfunction in aging.
