Dr. Geoffrey Burnstock
completed his Ph.D. at University College London. He held postdoctoral fellowships at National Institute for medical Research, University of Oxford and University of Illinois. Grants totaling over £18 million from MRC, BHF, Welcome Trust, NHMRC, NHF and the Drug Industry to support his work over the years. Dr. Geoffrey's major research interest has been autonomic neurotransmission and he is best known for his seminal discovery and definition of P2 purinergic receptors, their signaling pathways and functional relevance.

Senior Editors

Prof. John E. Gerich
The University of Rochester, USA. He has experience in teaching over 35 years. He has been a clinical investigator for about 500 publications. Dr. Gerich has also served as Program Director of the NIH funded Clinical Research Center (CRC). His research examines hormone-substrate control of glucose homeostasis and of hypoglycemia counter regulation by evaluating the role of the kidney.

Prof. Hermann Toplak
presently working as Professor of Medicine and in charge of the Medical Curriculum in Internal Medicine, Medical University Graz, Austria.
