Advanced Health Care Technologies is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal provides a unique and broad international forum for experimental and theoretical studies of interdisciplinary articles on: point-of-care, health care diagnostics and treatment, biology, chemistry, bioengineering, biotechnology, biosensing, electronics, clinical/medical science, chemical engineering, materials science, regenerative medicine, micro/nano-technologies, and methods and applications for nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Dr. Demirci leads a group of 20+ researchers focusing on micro- and nanoscale technologies for applications in medicine at Stanford University and has a strong and scholarly track record of multiple creative innovations. Dr. Demirci creates technologies to manipulate cells in nanoliter volumes to enable solutions for real world problems in medicine, including applications in infectious diseases and early cancer diagnostics, sorting platforms for fertility assays, cell encapsulation in nanoliter droplets for cryobiology, and 3-D bottom-up tissue engineering models. His research interests involve applications of microfluidics in medicine. His work focuses on creating innovative tools to be used broadly by life-science researchers to understand biology and medicine, and create links between these interdisciplinary fields revolutionizing current approaches and methods that are used to investigate living cells and their microenvironment as well as understand, diagnose, monitor, and treat disease conditions.

He says, “I am pleased to serve as an editor of the journal, which focuses on original papers and reviews on platform technologies that are at the interface between engineering and medicine to address fundamental biological and clinical questions. In this interdisciplinary space at the convergence of engineering, biology, medicine, the journal will publish research findings by addressing important scientific questions in the biomedical research and its applications at the clinic and point-of-care.”

Publisher Tim Hill at Dove Medical Press added, “The appointment of Dr. Demirci as the Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Health Care Technologies is particularly exciting at this time, with the heightened level of interest in this field internationally. All of us at Dove Medical Press are committed to sustaining the highest levels of editorial integrity, rigorous and constructive peer-review, along with rapid publication times and the presentation of quality research findings.”
