Chiles on Journal Board

Assoc. Prof. Thomas Chiles (Biology) has been named an associate editor of the Journal of Immunology , considered one of the foremost journals in the field. Published by the American Association of Immunologists, the journal carries articles in all areas of experimental and clinical immunology, Chiles said, and is ranked among the discipline's top three journals.

Chiles said he was "extremely gratified" by the four-year appointment, which he said serves as recognition not only of his research, but of the excellence of the department.

"When a member of our department is appointed to the editorial board of a major peer-review journal, it recognizes the entire Biology Department at both the national and international levels," he said. "It tells the scientific community outside BC that we have top-notch faculty doing cutting-edge research."
