Rockman elected next editor-in-chief of JCI

Friday, May 27, 2011

Howard Rockman, MD, professor of medicine (Cardiology), has been elected editor-in-chief of The Journal of Clinical Investigation.

Rockman will serve as editor from March 2012 through February 2017 together with an editorial board based at Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore.

Rockman discusses the prestigious selection in this JCI news interview.

"In addition to a strong team of Deputy and Associate Editors, I have asked Bob Lefkowitz to chair a newly created Executive Council. This council will be responsible for evaluating our progress year to year, and providing editorial advice on papers that need additional review — like when an author feels like they haven’t had a fair review."

Other faculty who will participate:

  • David Virshup, MD, professor of pediatrics and director of the Program in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology at Duke-NUS, will be Asia Editor
  • Thomas Coffman, MD, professor or medicine and chair of the Division of Nephrology, will be a deputy editor
  • Paul Noble, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine, will be a deputy editor
  • Norman Sharpless, MD, professor of medicine and genetics at UNC-CH, will be a deputy editor

Congratulations to Dr. Rockman.
