I am delighted to present this special issue of the Journal of Trace elements in Medicine and Biology dedicated to “News about trace elements and researchers in the field”.
In the latest years there is a generational change in principle investigators in the field of nutritional sciences also including professors working on minerals and trace elements in health and disease. While it is sad that many well established colleagues are leaving active research it provides others with the opportunity to fill those gaps and to start with new ideas, methods, research questions, ideas, and concepts.
Thus, this special issues aims to give an impression of those changes by introducing young researchers working on trace elements before or at the transition stage from a Postdoc towards a permanent position. The topics should cover relevant new topics in the field of trace element research giving a broad perspective. Besides handing in a review or original article, the young researcher, who should ideally also be the corresponding author of the article, is asked to provide a short CV including a photo to introduce himself/herself.
