Steven Rosen, MD, Genevieve Teuton Professor of Medicine at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, and director of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, has agreed to accept the position of Editor-in-Chief for Oncology News International (ONI).
Dr. Rosen will work closely with Oncology News International's editorial advisory board and staff to help set the editorial tone and direction for the publication.
"I am very proud to follow in the footsteps of my dear friend and mentor Marty Abeloff—a great role model for all oncologists," Dr. Rosen said. "I hope to sustain the high quality of the journal and seek the guidance of our readership to ensure that the most important issues affecting our field are communicated in a timely and scholarly manner."
Dr. Abeloff, who died last year, was director of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, and served as Editor-in-Chief of ONI from its inception in 1982.
Dr. Rosen has worked with Oncology News International in the past as an editorial advisor and is lead author of the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma chapter of the Cancer Management Handbook, a publication of the group that produces ONI.
"We're extremely pleased to have Dr. Rosen on board as Editor-in-Chief," said John C. Hayes, editorial director. "He brings a level of energy, knowledge, and experience that will be of tremendous value to Oncology News International and its readers."
