Editors for Medicine

We aim to publish significant research and clinical studies that deal with etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, genetics, prevention, and treatment of human disease. Our interests include, but are not limited to, the biological, environmental and socioeconomic determinants of health and disease and their productive modification through population health, clinical inquiry, medical practice, and/or health policy initiatives.

  2. Christian Büchel

    University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany

    Christian Büchel is a member of the Hamburg Center for Neuroscience in Hamburg, where he is also the Director of the Department for Systems Neuroscience at Hamburg University Medical Center. He holds an Affiliate Professor appointment in the Psychology department at the University of Hamburg. After Medical School at the University of Heidelberg, he performed postdoctoral research with Karl Friston as a Wellcome Research Fellow at the Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience at UCL in London with a focus on effective connectivity.

    Establishing his lab in Hamburg, he focused on the cognitive neuroscience of pain and motivation and initially studied decision making with an emphasis on delay discounting. In a parallel stream of projects he observed that the pain modulation underlying placebo analgesia can already be observed at the spinal cord level, a finding which he later also established for nocebo hyperalgesia. He is part of the IMAGEN study and during his time at Stanford he identified hypoactivation of reward circuits as a potential risk factor for addiction.

    He is a member of the Academy of Science in Hamburg and was awarded the Jung Award for Medicine, the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz-Preis by the German Research Foundation, and the Wiley Young Investigator Award of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping for recognition of his work in cognitive neuroscience.

  8. Richard M White

    Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, United States

    Richard White, M.D., Ph.D, is a physician-scientist at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell Medical College. He is interested in basic mechanisms underlying metastasis, using the zebrafish as a model system. His work has established numerous techniques for cancer modeling and high-resolution imaging in the fish. Using these tools, the lab is focused on the cross-talk between tumor cells and the microenvironment, and how this interplay influences metastatic success. His work has revealed novel interactions between melanoma cells and adipocytes in the microenvironment, and how neural crest programs play roles in melanoma progression. He has been awarded the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, the Pershing Square Foundation Award, and the Mark Foundation ASPIRE award.

  9. Mone Zaidi

    Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, United States

    Mone Zaidi graduated in medicine from King George’s Medical College, India, and trained clinically at the Hammersmith Hospital, London, under the tutelage of Iain MacIntyre, FRS. After obtaining a PhD and MD from the University of London, Dr Zaidi held appointments as Lecturer at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School and Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant at St. George’s Hospital Medical School for over 8 years. In 1999, he moved to Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York as Professor of Medicine and Founding Director of The Mount Sinai Bone Program. Zaidi has discovered mechanisms of skeletal homeostasis in health and its dysregulation in common and rare diseases. These studies, spanning over 30 years, included the first description of calcium sensing in the osteoclast and the discovery that locally released nitric oxide acts to suppress bone removal. In 2003, his group published evidence for a pituitary–bone axis of medical significance, in which pituitary hormones affect the skeleton directly. More recently, he found that inhibiting FSH not only increased bone mass, but also reduced body fat and increased thermogenesis – in essence, laying the firm foundation for his new humanized monoclonal FSH antibody to treat both osteoporosis and obesity. This corpus of work was selected by Nature Medicine as one of eight “Notable Advances” in biomedicine for 2017. Zaidi’s research was funded by the Medical Research Council of the UK, and since 1997, by the US National Institutes of Health. He is an elected member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation, Association of American Physicians, the Interurban Clinical Club (established by Sir William Osler in 1905) of which he was President, the Practitioners’ Society of New York (the oldest medical society in the US), and the Association of Professors of Medicine. Zaidi was made Master of the American College of Physicians, received the Harrington Scholar-Innovator Award, was elected as Fellow of the American Association of Advancement of Science, and is recipient of three honorary doctorates.
