The American Heart Association and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer
Health, are pleased to announce that Mark B. Taubman, M.D. has been named editor-in-chief of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association (ATVB), a monthly journal devoted to the biology, prevention and impact of vascular diseases.
Taubman is the Charles A. Dewey Professor of Medicine, Chairman of
Medicine, and co-director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute at the
University of Rochester, New York. The July 2007 issue of Arteriosclerosis,
Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, which posted today, is the first under
"I am honored at the opportunity to oversee this outstanding journal,"
Taubman said. "Together with my associate editors, my goals are to
establish ATVB as the leader in vascular biology, as a trendsetter and a
place for exploring new technologies and approaches, and as a site for
publishing comprehensive studies of the highest quality."
As the journal name indicates, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and
Vascular Biology covers all aspects of new research related to
arteriosclerosis, thrombosis and vascular biology. Each monthly issue
features major new peer- reviewed studies from all disciplines contributing
to the field, with a focus on the scientific advances that will drive
tomorrow's advances in clinical practice.
"Our vision is to provide a forum for presenting cutting-edge
technologies and many new avenues of investigation-such as vascular
development, stem cell research, genomics, proteomics, genetics and
nanotechnology-now being explored by investigators in our three core
disciplines," Taubman said.
In addition to original research, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and
Vascular Biology is noted for presenting up-to-date reviews on topics of
pressing interest, written by prominent experts in the field. Recent review
-- the connection between adipose (fat) tissue and atherosclerosis;
-- emerging clinical approaches to manipulating angiogenesis (the
formation of new blood vessels); and
-- the contribution of fast food to the rise of obesity and
Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology also presents
editorials, letters to the editor and other features to keep readers
involved in the worldwide dialogue concerning the development, prevention
and treatment of arteriosclerosis and thrombosis.
Subscribers can access the full text of each issue at the journal's Web
site, atvb.ahajournals.org. Articles of particular importance are posted
online, weeks before print publication in the "ATVBe First" section of the
Web site, allowing even earlier access to major clinical findings.
Subscribers, and readers alike, have access to the journal's expanded
online archive, providing access to the complete history of the
journal-dating back to the first issue in 1981.
"We're looking at opportunities to introduce other types of special
Web- enhanced content in the near future, thus enhancing the value of the
journal to our subscribers and to the vascular community at large," Taubman
Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology is also available on
the Web site, the world's largest online database of more
than 900 premiere medical journals offered exclusively by Ovid
Technologies, an operating company of the Wolters Kluwer Health division.
"The coming years promise to be an exciting time for scientific
research in all fields related to vascular biology and vascular diseases,"
commented Ivor J. Benjamin, M.D., chairperson of the American Heart
Association's Scientific Publishing Committee. "We are certain that, under
Dr. Taubman's tenure, ATVB will strengthen its position as an indispensable
resource for all scientists involved in vascular research."
