Edward Lynch (Dental) has been appointed to the editorial board of Nature, Scientific Reports. The editorial board manages the peer review process, and makes final decisions on whether papers should be accepted. The board comprises experts from all major fields within the clinical, biological, chemical, physical, and earth sciences, to ensure that each submission is handled by a specialist with an active research career. Lynch also published a clinical trial in this prestigious journal Nature, Scientific Reports in June, titled "Ozone Treatment of Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis: A Double Blinded study." This research showed that application of ozone on recurrent aphthous stomatitis lesions for 60 seconds reduced pain levels and enhanced ulcers healing by reducing ulcers size and duration.
