Assoc. Prof Priv Doz. Nandu Goswami, PhD, is a cardiovascular physiologist with special interests in cardiovascular regulation, cerebral blood flow, orthostatic intolerance and effects of bedrest induced deconditioning. He is the Acting Chair of Physiology Division and is the Head of Research group "Gravitational Physiology, Aging and Medicine" at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. He is also actively involved in teaching and carrying out research in aging care, especially in social gerontology, as a visiting faculty member of the Alma Mater Europaea Maribor, Slovenia. He is also the President of Austrian Physiological Society and a member of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA).

Dr. Goswami has been been with Clinical Interventions in Aging right from its humble beginnings. He, therefore, looks forward to bringing the journal further in its international standing in aging care. He specifically aims to push for this journal to become very popular with the leading geriatricians and gerontologists in Europe, Asia and North America. Dr. Goswami is an active member/ one of the coordinators of the European Innovative Partnerships Active and Healthy aging (EIP-AHA) and is the national contact point of the European Geriatrics Medical Society (EUGMS) falls prevention network in Austria. He is also the co-president of the Active Aging Network, which organizes the Annual Aging Conference, and is collaborative network / platform for active and healthy aging research, in the Alpine Adria region in the EU. In 2020, the theme was "COVID-19, Aging and Agingcare".

Dr. Goswami has published over 115 papers in the field of cardiovascular system, vascular function assessments in health and diseases, including several reviews related to aging, spaceflight and how life in space can lead to benefits on Earth ("Geriatrics meets spaceflight"). He has been involved in showcasing how spaceflight research can have benefits for understanding the mechanisms associated with aging associated functional and cognitive (FCD) decline. For instance, he is currently a member of the UN office of Outer Space's "Space & Global Health Working Group" as well as member of the European Space Agency (ESA) expert group on SciSpace Road map committee (moderator of the "cardio-pulmonary and renal group") as well as an active member of the "ESA bedrest expert group". As bedrest confinement is used as a model for understanding spaceflight induced deconditioning, and old persons spend a lot of time confined in bed (up to even 80% during hospitalization), the bedrest model is extensively studied by Dr. Goswami. The knowledge gained from bedrest confinement is not only used for understanding the mechanisms by which physiological deconditioning occurs during bedrest but also for designing appropriate countermeasures to overcome the FCD effects of bedrest confinement.

Dr. Goswami has over 10-years experience as either academic editor, editor-in-chief, associate editor and editorial board member in several journals. These include: Journal of Clinical Medicine, Healthcare, Physiological Research, REACH, npj Microgravity, Frontiers in Physiology, Scientific Reports, Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management, Medicine, Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) and Plos One. His expertise and experience in these journals will be used to promote the hosting of special topics related to gerontology and geriatrics in Clinical Interventions in Aging. He will also encourage publications of e-books based on these special topics.
