Australia Elsevier recognises achievement of Australia and New Zealand's scientists at Scopus Researcher Awards 2017 - 13 Nov 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, announced winners of the Scopus Researcher Awards 2017 in three categories at Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia. The awards are open to and recognise the academic contribution of Australia and New Zealand's researchers who are building a career in academic research, and help them gain broad recognition at home and abroad for their work.

First launched in 2010, the awards aim to help support early career researchers in their quest to advance the frontiers of science across disciplines.

This year, Elsevier introduced three new award categories - Excellence in Innovative Research Award; Excellence in Sustainability Research Award; and Women in Research Award - to recognise innovative and original research across different fields of science.

The Women in Research Award was created to inspire and encourage more female researchers who choose to pursue academic work in response to the findings of Elsevier's benchmark report, 'Gender in the Global Research Landscape', which highlights that despite their lower scientific output when compared to their male counterparts, female researchers in Australia are on par in research quality.

The award ceremony was held at the Powerhouse Museum and attended by guests representing Australia and New Zealand's top scientific fraternity, including guest-of-honour, Scientia Professor Veena Sahajwalla, Director of Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) at UNSW Australia, who was one of the award presenters.

US American Chemical Society appoints Shana J. Sturla new editor-in-chief of Chemical Research in Toxicology - 13 Nov 2017

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has announced the appointment of Dr. Shana J. Sturla of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETH Zürich) as the next editor-in-chief of Chemical Research in Toxicology, the only chemistry-focused journal dedicated to advancing the understanding of toxic agents. Sturla will take over leadership of the distinguished peer-reviewed journal, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, at the beginning of 2018.

Sturla joined the faculty of ETH Zürich in the Department of Health Sciences and Technology in 2009 and was promoted to full professor of toxicology in 2016. Upon her arrival in Switzerland, Sturla was the only woman in Zürich to be awarded a prestigious European Research Council Starting Grant that year. In 2014, Sturla received Chemical Research in Toxicology’s Young Investigator in Toxicology Award, and in 2015 she became the vice president of the Swiss Society of Toxicology. Her research focuses on the chemical basis of mutagenesis and toxicity, of which she seeks to delineate the relationships between chemical structures, enzyme-catalyzed chemical transformations, and cellular responses to environmental and dietary toxicants and cancer drugs.

Chemical Research in Toxicology published its first issue in 1988 with a mission of advancing the understanding of the impact of chemical and biological agents on human health. The journal publishes articles, reviews, perspectives and letters covering all aspects of the chemical basis of toxic responses.

Sturla will succeed Dr. Stephen S. Hecht, who has served as the journal's editor since 2013. Hecht is the Wallin Land Grant Professor of Cancer Prevention at the University of Minnesota Cancer Center, where Sturla served under his guidance as a postdoctoral fellow.

US AIP Publishing and AVS partner to launch eSpectra: Surface Science - 13 Nov 2017

AIP Publishing and AVS, an interdisciplinary, professional Society, have announced the launch of eSpectra: Surface Science, a new plotting and visualization tool providing access to over 4,000 peer-reviewed spectra from 700 materials, all on one interactive platform. The peer-reviewed XPS, AES, and UPS datasets come from over 600 articles published in Surface Science Spectra, the definitive international journal by the AVS.

eSpectra enables researchers to interpret datasets as easy-to-use visualizations, find peak values, compare data, and collaborate with peers. It also serves as a 'shared file cabinet' allowing secure storage, intuitive keyword searching, and tracking and sharing of datasets.

AVS supports networking among academic, industrial, government, and consulting professionals involved in a variety of disciplines - chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, all engineering disciplines, business, sales, etc. through common interests related to the basic science, technology development, and commercialisation of materials, interfaces, and processing area. AVS is a member society of AIP.

US American Academy of Ophthalmology and DigiSight Technologies in deal to drive innovations in eye health through world’s largest specialty clinical database - 13 Nov 2017

The American Academy of Ophthalmology and DigiSight Technologies, Inc. have announced an agreement to operate the world's largest database of ophthalmic clinical information. As part of the agreement, the Academy is licensing commercial application of its IRIS® Registry (Intelligent Research in Sight) to DigiSight. Terms were not disclosed.

The arrangement enables DigiSight to build new analytic applications and user interfaces to enhance the IRIS Registry, which will be marketed to pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers, health systems, payers and other customers that can benefit from the vast database to innovate ophthalmic patient care.

The IRIS Registry was developed to improve patient care, enable clinical discovery and simplify federal government and commercial payer quality reporting. It is a centralised collection and analytic software tool that compiles and processes data from electronic health records and other sources to enable ophthalmologists to analyse patient outcomes, benchmark to their peers and pinpoint opportunities for improvement.

The database also facilitates analytics of eye care issues at a population level including disease natural history, impact of comorbidities, comparison of therapies, outcomes of care, and support of clinical research human trials. Launched in 2014, it is the largest specialty-based clinical data registry in all of medicine, with more than 41.2 million unique patients in its database, representing 166.2 million patient visits.

Founded by renowned eye physicians and surgeons, DigiSight is led by a team of healthcare and technology veterans and backed by blue-chip investors. Through the creation of a segregated commercial focus for the IRIS Registry, DigiSight will be able to deploy the resources needed to quickly respond to the demands of industry partners that can utilise the aggregate, de-identified data set to create innovative new solutions for patient care.

The Academy noted that its relationship with its member physicians participating in the IRIS Registry is unchanged. Access remains available to all members in good standing. The same protections for individual data and dissemination of that data continue as before.

US CSHL Press releases Cell-Cell Junctions, Second Edition - 13 Nov 2017

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHLP) has announced the release of Cell-Cell Junctions, Second Edition, available on its website in hardcover and eBook formats.

Neighbouring cells are linked to each other by multimolecular complexes such as adherens junctions, desmosomes, and gap junctions. These complexes help maintain tissue integrity, act as barriers to permeability, reinforce cell polarity, and allow cells to communicate with each other.

Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology reviews understanding of the organisation, regulation, and dynamics of cell-cell junctions and the roles they play in morphogenesis, tissue homeostasis, and disease. The contributors examine the assembly and structure of different cell-cell adhesion systems, the plasticity of cell-cell junctions (e.g., during cell migration), and how the junctions act as hubs to sense and transduce various mechanical and chemical signals.

The authors also discuss the roles of cell-cell junctions in specific developmental and physiological processes, such as hearing, skeletal myogenesis, and neural circuit assembly, as well as in diseases such as cancer. This volume is therefore an indispensable reference for cell and developmental biologists, as well as anyone interested in understanding the roles of these complexes in human health and disease.
