Andrew Moore, Editor in Chief, BioEssays, Weinheim, Germany
Andrew Moore's background is in molecular biology (PhD from the MRC-LMB, Cambridge, 1998), but he decided that his knowledge of biology and interest in communicating could be turned to good use in the support of scientists, rather than working in a lab himself. From 1999 to 2008, he was Programme Manager for Science & Society at EMBO, and contributing editor for the journal EMBOreports. At EMBO, he developed activities ranging from stakeholder conferences, and education workshops for teachers, to media communication workshops for scientists. He has worked in the Wiley publishing group since 2008. Besides being Editor-in-Chief of the journal BioEssays, he is also an editor for the recently launched Advanced Science, and is also Editor-in-Chief of a new student training platform known as the Wiley Researcher Academy.
