CVM’s Rosenfeld Chosen for Review Board of Prestigious NIH Science Journal

Cheryl S. Rosenfeld, an associate professor of biomedical sciences at MU’s College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), has been named to the editorial review board of the scientific journal Environmental Health Perspectives.

A monthly peer-reviewed journal of research and news, Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) is published with support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. EHP news content is prepared by science journalists and reviewed by subject matter experts.

“This is truly an honor to be invited to be part of the editorial review board at EHP,” Rosenfeld said. “It exemplifies the fact that the University of Missouri is becoming recognized in the environmental health sciences field. As a member of this board, I hope to be able lend my expertise in veterinary medicine and promote the notion that the One Health, One Medicine concept is especially applicable in this field as humans and animals share common environments.”

Rosenfeld, DVM, PhD, teaches veterinary microanatomy and veterinary pharmacology at the CVM. She also serves as an investigator at the Bond Life Sciences Center, as a research faculty member in the Genetics Area Program, and as a researcher for the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurobehavioral Disorders.

“Dr. Rosenfeld came highly recommended for the EHP Editorial Review Board by one of our associate editors who attested to her scientific expertise in endocrinology and the rigor or her reviews for other journals,” according to Sally Perreault Darney, EHP’s editor-in-chief. “EHP’s reputation for publishing highly credible environmental health research is built upon effective and fair peer review. We are delighted to welcome Dr. Rosenfeld to our Editorial Review Board where she will help us evaluate the scientific quality of manuscripts about environmental influences on reproductive health.”

EHP’s mission is to serve as a forum for the discussion of the interrelationships between the environment and human health by publishing high-quality research and news of the field. It is one of the most highly ranked journals in toxicology, public, environmental and occupational health and environmental sciences.

Published since 1972, EHP has been online-only since January 2013. EHP is open access, and all content is available for free online.
