The Bioelectromagnetics Society announces the selection of the 2012 Most Influential Bioelectromagnetics Journal Paper by Citation Award from among the primary research articles published between 2007 and 2011. It will be awarded to Andrei G. Pakhomov, Juergen F. Kolb, Jody A. White, Ravindra P. Joshi, Shu Xiao, and Karl H. Schoenbach, from the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, for their paper entitled “Long-lasting plasma membrane permeabilization in mammalian cells by nanosecond pulsed electric field (nsPEF),” published in Bioelectromagnetics, vol 28(8): 655–663, December 2007. Ravindra P. Joshi is also with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Old Dominion University.

In addition to a certificate to each of the authors, the award, including a monetary prize, will be presented to the authors in June 2013 during the Annual Meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, held in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The Most Influential Bioelectromagnetics Journal Paper by Citation Award was established by the Bioelectromagnetics Society in 2007 to recognize scholarly contributions to the scientific community, and to acknowledge and foster ongoing excellence in scientific discovery and achievement in its field.
