Editors for Immunology and Inflammation

We aim to publish studies that provide new insights into the development and function of the immune system and inflammatory processes, irrespective of model organism. We also welcome studies on associated human diseases, new therapeutic strategies, and development of new methodologies or interdisciplinary studies that integrate immunology and inflammation with other research fields. Read the latest research in this subject area.
eLife's peer-review process is changing. From January 2023, eLife will no longer make accept/reject decisions after peer review. Instead, every preprint sent for peer review will be published on the eLife website as a “Reviewed Preprint” that includes an eLife assessment, public reviews, and a response from the authors (if available). When writing the eLife assessment, the editors and reviewers will use a common vocabulary to summarize the significance of the findings and the strength of the evidence reported in the preprint. Read about the new process.

  3. Betty Diamond

    The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, United States

    Betty Diamond received an MD from Harvard Medical School. She performed a residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, and then a post-doctoral fellowship in Immunology with Dr Matthew Scharff at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She is currently Director of the Institute of Molecular Medicine at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.

    Dr Diamond’s research has focused on the induction and pathogenicity of anti-DNA antibodies in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. She showed that somatic mutation of immunoglobulin genes can generate autoantibodies in mice and humans, making the germinal center a focus in disease pathogenesis. Her laboratory has also demonstrated that a subset of anti-DNA antibodies cross-reacts with the NMDA receptor and showed that autoantibodies can cause aspects of neuropsychiatric lupus, creating a paradigm for antibody-mediated changes in brain function in many conditions. Most recently, she has developed a research program on the immunomodulatory functions of C1q.

    She received the Outstanding Investigator Award of the ACR in 2001, the Lee Howley Award from the Arthritis Foundation in 2002, and the Recognition Award from the National Association of MD-PhD Programs in 2004 and the AAI Distinguished Fellow Award in 2019. In 2006, she was elected to the Institute of Medicine and became a fellow of the AAAS. She has served on the Scientific Council of NIAMS and the Board of Directors of the American College of Rheumatology. She is a past President of the American Association of Immunologists.

  6. Tony Ng

    King's College London, United Kingdom

    Tony Ng (FMEDSCI, MB ChB, MRCP, FRCPath, PhD) brings a rich spectrum of knowledge and capabilities with clinical experience in treating AIDS patients (with opportunistic infections and cancers) and fundamental immunology skills. He is also a pioneer of molecular imaging in cancer. He was the first person to use antibody based fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) approaches in tumour cells and tissues to monitor protein states and function. He has published on how to visualize protein biochemistry in preclinical models; as well as in patient-derived cancer tissues for establishing in vitro/ companion diagnostics. He has adopted a multidisciplinary approach to understand cancer recurrence and also to stratify molecularly targeted agents in combination with immunotherapy. His research bridges the gap between physics, biology and medicine, particularly in the field of translational cancer research.

    For clinical translation, he has the proven ability to coordinate and work cooperatively with colleagues and leaders in a wide variety of disciplines (imaging, cell biology, oncology, bioinformatics, surgery, pathology, genomics, as well as physical science disciplines such as mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering). He has directed the KCL and UCL Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre (CCIC, one of four centres funded by CRUK & EPSRC in the UK) since its inception in 2008. The vision for the CCIC is to develop novel imaging (PET and MRI) technologies and use them in combination with clinicopathological assessment, genomics and in-house nanoscopic imaging to measure protein interactions in the context of interventional trials. In such trial context, the tissue imaging (FLIM histology) approach he has developed and refined over the years is beginning to reveal ErbB/ HER receptor rewiring as a mechanism of resistance in human tumours under selection pressure such as cetuximab.

    Tony Ng is the current Director of the Comprehensive Cancer Centre, part of the KCL School of Cancer & Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Guy’s & St Thomas’ Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Cancer Theme. In 2022, he joined GSK on a part-time basis, to help establish the GSK-KCL Translational Oncology Research Hub which was which was announced in September 2021. The aim is to apply his clinical medicine training as well as immunology, biochemistry and imaging expertise to accelerate the development of the anti-cancer drugs. HIs experience of collaborating with mathematicians/theoretical physicists creates an opportunity to bridge the biology & AI/ML interface, an essential component of delivering the innovative Digital biological twin vision.

    Training/expertise: Medicine, Immunology, Cancer cell biology, Biochemistry and Optical Imaging/Biophysics as well as preclinical Radionuclide imaging.

    Tadatsugu Taniguchi

    Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo, Japan

    Tada Taniguchi is Professor Emeritus of The University of Tokyo and Advisor to the Office of President, working at the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology of the University. He also served as Director of the Max Planck–The University of Tokyo Center for Integrative Inflammology from 2014 to 2018. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Zurich. His work principally concerns the mechanisms of signal transduction and gene expression that underlie immunity and oncogenesis. Many of his research projects have stemmed from his original discovery of two cytokine genes, interferon-beta and interleukin-2. These discoveries have laid the groundwork for the molecular characterization of the various systems of cytokines as well as therapeutic advances achieved by the administration of cytokines. One extension of this research was his discovery of a new family of transcription factors, the interferon regulatory factors (IRFs), which he and others have since identified as playing integral roles in the regulation of the immunity, inflammation and cancer. He has received numerous awards, including the Robert Koch Prize, Pezcoller-AACR International Award for Cancer Research, and was bestowed the Person of Cultural Merit award from the Government of Japan. He was also elected Foreign Associate Member of the National Academy of Sciences, USA, in 2003, International Member of the National Academy of Medicine in 2016 and Associate Member of EMBO in 2018.
