T. Lichtor (Biography
T. Lichtor

Terry Lichtor, MD, PhD is a practicing neurosurgeon. He has a number of research interests, and his brain tumor work is largely focused on the development of a DNA vaccine for treatment of primary and metastatic intracerebral tumors. In particular Dr. Lichtor has shown that vaccines prepared by transfer of DNA from the tumor into a highly immunogenic cell line stimulates an antitumor immune response which may be efficacious in the treatment of patients with brain tumors. Other research interests include developing a passive immunotherapeutic strategy for treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease. In addition, he has been involved in the development of a non-invasive MRI technique to measure intracranial pressure and brain compliance, and has been exploring the efficacy of this modality in managing a variety of patients with neurologic problems where intracranial pressure is an issue. Dr. Lichtor is a member of the neurosurgery faculty at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois.

C.C. van Donkelaar

René van Donkelaar obtained his PhD degree in 1999 at the Maastricht University, after which he moved to the Biomedical Engineering Department of the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands, where he is currently appointed associate professor in cartilage mechanics. Using fundamental insights on the mechanical behavior of cartilage, he established a well-recognized computational model of cartilage mechanics. The main asset of this model is that it directly links biochemical contents (distributions of proteoglycans and collagen) and structural features (collagen fiber orientation), to mechanical properties. This fundamental work on cartilage mechanics has been applied to develop loading protocols for cartilage tissue engineering, and understanding tissue adaptation and degeneration. Present focus is on adopting the insights on how adverse mechanical loading leads to progression of osteoarthritis, to develop diagnostic tools and superior methods for clinical intervention for treatment of osteoarthritis.

Jeffrey M. Weinberg
(St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, USA)

"Open access journals are extremely useful for graduate students, investigators and all other interested persons to read important scientific articles and subscribe scientific journals. Indeed, the research articles span a wide range of area and of high quality. This is specially a must for researchers belonging to institutions with limited library facility and funding to subscribe scientific journals."


Debomoy K. Lahiri
(Indiana University School of Medicine, USA)

"Open access journals represent a major break-through in publishing. They provide easy access to the latest research on a wide variety of issues. Relevant and timely articles are made available in a fraction of the time taken by more conventional publishers. Articles are of uniformly high quality and written by the world's leading authorities."


Robert Looney
(Naval Postgraduate School, USA)

"Open access journals have transformed the way scientific data is published and disseminated: particularly, whilst ensuring a high quality standard and transparency in the editorial process, they have increased the access to the scientific literature by those researchers that have limited library support or that are working on small budgets."
