Three new Co-editors appointed to Acta Crystallographica Section D, Structural Biology

[D co-eds]

The Editors of Acta Cryst. D, Randy Read and Elspeth Garman, have welcomed three new Co-editors to the editorial board, saying "They enhance the already impressive range of expertise in our current board, and they help to reflect the diversity of our subject coverage, authors and readers".

Kristina Djinović-Carugo is Head of the Department of Structural and Computational Biology in the Max Perutz labs in Vienna, Austria. With a major research interest in understanding the structural biology of complex systems such as the muscle Z-disk and the actin-based cytoskeleton, as well as of metalloproteins, she has developed expertise in integrative structural biology techniques that combine a variety of methods.

Ana González is the BioMAX beamline manager at the MAX IV synchrotron facility in Lund, Sweden. She brings 30 years of experience at a variety of synchrotrons around the world (Daresbury SRS, ESRF, EMBL Hamburg and SSRL before moving to Sweden) to the journal, with expertise in synchrotron science, radiation damage, optimal data collection for different phasing experiments, and the use of XFEL sources.

K. R. Vinothkumar is based at the National Centre for Biological Sciences of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bangalore, India. Prior to this, he developed expertise in cryo-EM techniques working with Werner Kühlbrandt at the MPI in Frankfurt, Germany, and with Richard Henderson at the MRC-LMB in Cambridge, UK. His current research on membrane proteins and macromolecular complexes employs a combination of cryo-EM and X-ray diffraction, relevant to the growing number of cryo-EM papers submitted to Acta Cryst. D and other IUCr journals.
