A former sea slug neurobiologist, Emilie Marcus, PhD, joined Cell Press in 1998 and rose through the ranks to become Editor of Cell in 2003 and CEO in 2012. Today, she leads a multimillion dollar business that includes 120 employees worldwide and publishes 32 scientific journals (and counting) hosts conferences, and develops innovative online tools for biomedical researchers. In addition to her senior-management role, Dr. Marcus is responsible for setting the strategic direction and overseeing the peer-review process and publication decisions for Cell Press’s flagship journal, Cell, for which she continues to serve as Editor-in-Chief. She is also a respected opinion leader in scientific publishing and has made significant contributions to debates on the impact of new information technology, reproducibility and ethics in biomedical research, peer review, business models, and the uses and abuses of impact factors as a measure of journal quality. Dr. Marcus earned a PhD in Neurobiology from Yale University and conducted postdoctoral training at the University of California, San Diego, and the Salk Institute. At Cell Press, she previously acted as an editor of Neuron and VP of content development. She currently serves on the board of the Elsevier Foundation.
