Cerebrospinal Fluid Research launched in December 2004 and
since the launch has been publishing articles covering all aspects of cerebrospinal fluid and choroid plexus in health and disease in the widest
sense. The journal’s scope will now be expanded to cover all brain barriers and
will be relaunched in 2011 with a new title, Fluids and Barriers of the CNS.
Tetsuya Terasaki, Distinguished Professor of Tohoku
University, Japan, has recently joined Cerebrospinal Fluid Research as co-Editor-in-Chief
alongside Hazel Jones. Professor Terasaki’s major research interests are
pharmacoproteomics, drug delivery to the brain, and the physiology and
molecular biology of blood-brain barrier function. Tetsuya will have
responsibility for the publication of articles on neural barriers including the
blood-brain, blood-nerve and blood-eye barriers.
There will be more information to follow in due course about
the journal’s relaunch, for now we would like to welcome Tetsuya to his new
