INL researcher integrates Scientific Reports editorial board

May 27, 2021

The Research Group Leader of the INL Precision Medicine – Engineering Research Group, Weng Kung Peng, is one of the most recent members of the editorial board of Scientific Reports from Nature Research.

Nature Research is a division of the international scientific publishing company Springer Nature that publishes high-quality and impactful research discoveries. Scientific Reports is an online peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by Nature Research, covering all areas of the natural sciences. This journal was launched in 2011, aiming to assess solely the scientific validity of a submitted paper, rather than its perceived importance, significance, or impact.

Weng Kung considers this invitation “a great recognition to a newly established field of precision medicine” championed by his research group. “It took me a while to establish an almost a completely new research direction – with and without the help of machine learning – for in vitro diagnostic, which is touted as the next big thing in personalized medicine”.

Weng Kung also shares this “great honour” with INL, an intergovernmental research organization where interdisciplinarity is key.
