Marina Soares e Silva, PhD – Publisher, Biomaterials

Marina is a biologist by training and since May 2013 has been the Publisher of Elsevier's Biomaterials portfolio. After completing a PhD in biophysics she traveled from Amsterdam to New York where she became a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Sloan-Kettering Institute in the field of developmental biology. In New York she learned how her interests in the communication of science, business and science policy could be put to use in the field of scientific publishing, and thus left behind the lab to start at Elsevier in the Amsterdam office. She keeps a close eye on everything Open Access in the materials area.
