The American Society of Hematology (ASH) has selected Nancy Berliner, MD, the H. Franklin Bunn Professor of Medicine and Chief of Hematology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, as the next Editor-in-Chief of its journal Blood. Dr. Berliner was selected by the ASH Executive Committee after an international search. Her term as Editor-in-Chief will begin in January 2020.
During the previous 6 years, Dr. Berliner has served as Deputy Editor of Blood and worked alongside current Editor-in-Chief, Bob Löwenberg, MD, PhD, of Erasmus University Medical School in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to introduce a series of successful features and expand the reach of the journal. Dr. Berliner’s vision for the future of Blood includes further expansion of the journal’s international and digital reach by continuing to increase the geographic diversity of the editorial board and creating dynamic content for online features.
“As Editor-in-Chief, I will continue to uphold the quality of our journal, so authors remain eager to submit their best work,” noted Dr. Berliner. ■
