Meet the Editor

Richard D. Ye, PhD 
Associate Editor
University of Macau
Taipa, Macau, China

Richard D. Ye, PhD is a Chair Professor in Pharmacology and the Deputy Director of Institute of Chinese Medical Sciences at the University of Macau. Prior to this position, he was the Zhiyuan Chair Professor and dean of the School of Pharmacy at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He completed medical school and residency in China and received his PhD in cell and integrative biology from Washington University in St. Louis.

Ye joined the faculty at The Scripps Research Institute in 1989 and then the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1998. From 1993 to 2008, he served on various grant review panels at the NIH including a regular member at the Innate Immunity and Inflammation study section. He has held editorial positions at U.S. and international journals including an Associate Editor of the American Journal of Physiology (Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology), section editor of the Journal of Immunology, associate editor of Pharmacological Reviews, and editorial board members of Molecular Pharmacology, British Journal of Pharmacology, and Acta Pharmacologica Sinica. He was an Established Investigator of the American Heart Association and was elected to China’s “1000 Talents” program.

His research programs was supported by grants from the NIH for 25 years, and more recently, from the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Macau Science and Technology Development Fund. Research in the Ye Lab focuses on the mechanisms by which cell surface receptors such as G protein-coupled receptors and Toll-like receptors activate innate immune cells and trigger a variety of host-defense actions.

The Business of The FASEB Journal

The FASEB Journal renews partnership with Kudos

Our authors have spoken!  Due to the increased engagement of our authors with Kudos this past year, a free service through which authors can broaden readership and increase the impact of their research, The FASEB Journal has renewed our partnership and will continue to encourage authors to participate.

Kudos is more than a just a networking site, and more than just a publication listing. It is a toolkit for explaining your work in plain language and for enriching it with links to related materials (watch a video about explaining and enriching). Kudos also provides a unique one-stop shop for multiple metrics relating to your publications: page views, citations, full text downloads and altmetrics. When you explain, enrich and share your work through Kudos, they map your actions against these metrics in charts that show you which activities are most effective when it comes to increasing the reach and impact of your work.

To make sure your research gets read and applied, visit the Kudos website.

The opinions expressed in editorials, essays, letters to the editor, and other articles described in this communication do not necessarily reflect the opinions of FASEB or its member societies.
