Tech Science Press (TSP) is pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Zhi-Yong Li to the position of Co-Editor-in-Chief of Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics. Prof. Zhi-Yong Li joins Dr. Konstantin Volokh in this capacity and will assume his new duties immediately.

Professor Zhi-Yong Li is the Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Head of Department of Biomechanics of Biological Science and Medical Engineering Institute at Southeast University. He has a BEng degree in Civil Engineering from Tongji University and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Queen Mary University of London. Between 2004-2010, he worked as a Research Fellow and then a Senior Research Fellow and elected Fellow of Wolfson College in University of Cambridge. His work is strongly focused on biomechanics of atherosclerotic plaque ruputure, publishing over 100 papers collectively on vulnerable plaque research. The main focus of his work has been the development of a better risk stratification for stroke in order to improve current clinical practice in the management of patients with carotid stenosis. His research interests also include cardiovascular biomechanics, image-based computational modeling and poroelastic theory.

We are excited to have Professor Zhi-Yong Li in the position to build on the work of past achievements and bring the journal to reach new heights and we believe that Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics will achieve a higher standard and greater prestige under the leadership of Prof. Zhi-Yong Li and Dr. Konstantin Volokh. Please join us in wishing Prof. Zhi-Yong Li all the best in his new role!
