Erick M. Carreira, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS)
Professor of Chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich
Born in Cuba in 1963 and based in Switzerland, Professor Carreira is both the first JACS editor-in-chief to live outside of the U.S. and the first Latin American to lead the journal. Carreira obtained his Bachelor of Science in 1984 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Scott E. Denmark and a Ph.D. degree in 1990 from Harvard University under the supervision of David A. Evans. He has been a full professor at the Organic Chemistry Laboratory of the ETH Zürich since 1998. A self-described “generalist,” Professor Carreira’s current research focuses on a variety of multidisciplinary fields, including natural products total synthesis, synthetic methods, and catalysis to prepare molecules with asymmetric bond construction. He is co-founder of three start-up companies and has been involved in the development of several chemistry education software tools. Professor Carreira is a member of both the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He’s been a member of the American Chemical Society for 37 years and has received numerous awards from the society, including the 2013 ACS Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry.
Carlos Toro, Ph.D.
Associate Publisher, ACS Publications
Dr. Carlos Toro earned his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from La Universidad del Zulia, Maracaibo, Venezuela, where he started his professional career as a computational chemist. In 2010, Carlos obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Central Florida, where he used multi-photon absorption spectroscopy to study the nonlinear optical properties of chiral molecules. Afterwards, he held a position as the Ellen D. Williams Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland, where his research focused on the study of high resolution transient infrared absorption spectroscopy of molecular super rotors. In Spring 2014, Carlos joined the ACS Publications Division and is now Associate Editor, overseeing nine journal titles with responsibility over their strategic development and management.
Shelley Minteer, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, ACS Au journals
USTAR Professor and the Dale and Susan Poulter Endowed Chair of Biological Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, University of Utah
Dr. Shelley Minteer is a USTAR Professor and the Dale and Susan Poulter Endowed Chair of Biological Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Utah. She received her PhD in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Iowa in 2000 under the direction of Professor Johna Leddy. After receiving her PhD, she spent 11 years as a faculty in the Department of Chemistry at Saint Louis University before moving to the University of Utah in 2011. She was an Associate Editor for the Journal of the American Chemical Society from 2016 until 2020 and is now the Editor in chief of the ACS Au journals. She has published greater than 400 publications and greater than 450 presentations at national and international conferences and universities. She has won several awards including the Luigi Galvani Prize of the Bioelectrochemical Society, the Missouri Inventor of the Year, International Society of Electrochemistry Tajima Prize and Bioelectrochemistry Prize, Grahame Award of the Electrochemical Society, Fellow of the Electrochemical Society and the International Society of Electrochemistry, American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Award in Electrochemistry, and the Society of Electroanalytical Chemists’ Young Investigator Award and Reilley Award.
Ben Mudrak, Ph.D.
Senior Product Manager, ChemRxiv
Dr. Ben Mudrak graduated in 2004 with a B.S. in Biology from the University of Virginia and then received a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology from Duke University studying the properties of a bacterial protein toxin. After several years as a postdoc and adjunct biology professor, Ben joined Research Square to develop an author education program and manage partnerships with scholarly publishers. Three years ago, Ben joined the American Chemical Society as Senior Product Manager. Here, he oversees services and resources for authors and reviewers at ACS journals, combining user feedback and business needs into a roadmap for improvements, adjustments, and new product launches. He is responsible for products including a suite of Authoring Services, online educational courses, and the preprint platform ChemRxiv.
