I received my PhD in Biology at Brandeis University in 1964. I have published more than 75 papers in peer reviewed journals including Science, PNAS, Radiation Research and Photochemistry and Photobiology, more than 190 abstracts and made numerous presentations at national and international scientific meetings. I have had support for my research from the American Cancer Society, the US Public Health Service and the NJ Cancer Research Commission. In 1997 I was awarded the Smith College Medal by my alma mater, Smith College, in Northampton, MA for my research on melanoma. I served on the Council of the American Society for Photobiology for 12 years, 6 of those as Secretary.

I think it is a wonderful idea. It is up to scientists not editors to evaluate the scientific impact and importance of reports.
