AMP Web Editorial Board

Mary Lowery Nordberg, PhD By Mary Lowery Nordberg, PhD
AMP Website Editor
e-mail: mlower@lsuhsc.edu

As the newly appointed head of the AMP Web Editorial Board and Website Editor, I would like to present to you this newly formed and very exciting project.  This endeavor, formed under the auspices of the AMP Publications Committee, will encompass all aspects of the Association for Molecular Pathology pertaining to our internet presence.  As you familiarize yourself with this undertaking, I first want to introduce you to our team.  We had our first formal meeting during the 2008 AMP Meeting.  Members are divided into “Design Team” and “Content Team”.  Members were selected from an initial solicitation regarding the project and the level of interest put forth by all involved parties.  I have provided a copy of our organizational chart for your information.  “Design”, which is actually a second tier component of this Board, includes Business Development/Grant Writing (Ted Schutzbank and Stephen Schmechel) and Web Design/Informatics/Marketing (me and AMP staff members including Chris Wallington, Alta Wallington).    The “Content” team is comprised of representatives, serving as content editors,  from each of the AMP Subdivisions: Genetics (Ron Przygodzki - Ronald.Przygodzki@va.gov), Hematopathology (David Bosler - bosler.david@mayo.edu), Infectious Diseases (Wayne Wang - yfwang@emory.edu), and Solid Tumors (George Netto - gnetto1@jhmi.edu  and Katherine Geiersbach - katherine.geiersbach@aruplab.com).  As liaisons on the Board, Kathleen Murphy (AMP Web Library Editor - kmurphy4@jhmi.edu) and Alexis Carter (AMP Test Directory Editor - abcart2@emory.edu) will be working with us to push this project to the next level.  We will be working together to integrate the AMP website, the AMP Test Directory, and other aspects of the AMP website to make it easier to navigate, so as to become a hugely powerful resource for all.  I am sure you will hear more from us as we increase our operational capacities.  Stay tuned for continued updates.  If you have suggestions, questions, or want to be more involved, please do not hesitate to contact me or the other members of the Board!
