About the Editors

Ricardo O. Louro is the leader of the Inorganic Biochemistry and NMR Laboratory at the Instituto de Tecnologia Quimica e Biologica (ITQB) Antonio Xavier of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Dr. Louro is a member of the Portuguese Biochemical Society, the Society for Biological Inorganic Chemistry, and the International Society for Microbial Electrochemical Technologies. His research work focuses on the investigation of the molecular bases for biological electron-transfer phenomena relevant for bioenergetic processes and the applications of this knowledge to blue-, red- or white-biotechnology.

Irene Diaz-Moreno is an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology in the Instituto de Bioquimica Vegetal y Fotosintesis (IBVF) at the Centro de Investigaciones Cientificas Isla de la Cartuja (cicCartuja). Her past research has focused on molecular recognition between metalloproteins involved in electron-transfer processes and the regulatory mechanisms of mRNA decay by RNA-binding proteins. Dr. Diaz-Moreno is currently developing research projects in biointeractomics as well as on the posttranslational regulation of biological macromolecules.
