Dove Medical Press Appoints Dr. Edgar Alfonso Romero-Sandoval Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pain Research


Dove Medical Press is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Edgar Alfonso Romero-Sandoval, Associate Professor in Anesthesiology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, as the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pain Research. The Romero-Sandoval laboratory explores neuroimmune interactions in surgical and neuropathic pain and neuropathies induced by diabetes or chemotherapy. The current major focus of this lab is placed on phenotypic changes in immune cells governed by endoplasmic reticulum or mitochondria function and dysfunction. An additional area of study is the endocannabinoid system in the context of pain and how the cannabis market in the U.S. is shaped and could affect cannabis user patients.

The journal’s Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Michael Schatman, commented : “I am thrilled that Dr. Alfonso Romero-Sandoval has accepted my invitation to become Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Pain Research. Alfonso was my first Associate Editor-in-Chief, and has been a loyal and productive lieutenant for the past 5 years in that capacity. He is the consummate scientist, and his work at the Wake Forest School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology, particularly on the resolution of post-operative surgical pain, is gaining international attention. With the recent expansion of the Journal of Pain Research, Dr. Romero-Sandoval will continue to serve in the role of Section Head Editor of the Pre-Clinical/Scientific section while assisting me in the day-to-day running of the Journal.”
