Felix Wieland studied Chemistry at the University of Munich and obtained his PhD in 1978 at the Max Plank Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried/Munich. In 1987 he was appointed Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Heidelberg and Director of the Institute for Biochemistry. In 1997, he became the founding director of the Heidelberg Biochemistry Center (BZH). His research has focused mainly on the molecular mechanisms of coated vesicle formation, as well as on protein–lipid interactions within the membrane bilayer, combining both structural and functional analyses. Felix Wieland is the Managing Editor of FEBS Letters since 2001.

Daniela obtained her PhD from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, within the Mouse Biology Unit at the Italian outstation of Monterotondo. Her work focused on the transcriptional and post-translational regulation of the transcription factor C/EBPβ, as well as on its role in regulating macrophage polarization in a mouse model of muscle inflammation. After her PhD, Daniela entered the world of science publishing through an internship at The EMBO Journal. She joined FEBS Letters in 2007 as Editor and has been the Editorial Manager since 2014.

Maria's broad interest in all aspects of biological research was fostered during her undergraduate studies at the University of Athens, Greece. In 2008, she obtained her PhD at the German Cancer Research Centre, studying the regulation of T-cell responses by Dickkopf-3, which is highly expressed in some immune-privileged tissues. After some years of postdoctoral research on the same topic, she moved to science publishing. From 2011 to 2013 she worked as an Associate Editor on Nature Reviews Immunology and Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology. In 2014, she joined FEBS Letters, handling research letters on excitingly diverse areas.

Juanita did her Ph.D. at the University of Rochester in New York, where she investigated the role of the nuclear receptor coactivator 3 (NCOA3) in tumorigenesis by the synovial sarcoma fusion protein SYT-SSX1. Her post-doctoral research work at the German Cancer Research Center and the University of Heidelberg focused on the mechanisms regulating intestinal stem cell proliferation in Drosophila. She enjoys working at FEBS Letters, since it provides the opportunity to learn continuously and be engaged in scientific research through the literature.

Wilhelm served as a group leader in the Department of Neuropathology of the Max Plank Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt from 1970–1978. He then became group leader at the Heidelberg Institute of Biochemistry (BZH) until his retirement in 2008. His research has focused on subcellular organelles (particularly peroxisomes), membrane proteins, small GTPases and lipid biology. After retirement he joined FEBS Letters as a Reviews Editor, editing Special Issues and FOCUS ON... series on a broad range of topics in Life Sciences.
