Introducing the New Editor-in-Chief of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education is a leading journal in this field because of the fine leadership that Donald and Judy Voet had provided over the past 10+ years. As I take the helm, my objectives include preserving and growing all of the very fine standards and traditions they have established. Over the coming year I will work with the Editorial Board to determine areas that the journal might explore so that it can continue to meet the needs of educators throughout the world. For example, it might be appropriate to focus some attention on emerging pedagogies in distance education, continuing refinements in professional and medical education, strategies for overcoming the challenges faced by underserved students, and the emergence of underrecognized educational committees.
On behalf of the Editorial Board of BAMBEd, I encourage scientists and educators to continue submitting their finest ideas and reports to this journal. In additiona, please do contact me if you have constructive suggestions for how we may continually develop this journal so that it will remain a leader in developing and sharing pedagogical ideals.
