CHHS associate dean named journal editor

Christopher Blanchette, associate dean for research in the College of Health and Human Services, has been appointed editor-in-chief of the journal Drugs in Context. This is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal that focuses on the practice of medicine.

As editor, Blanchette will play a role in the journal’s mission, which is to make an academic contribution to international life science and to inform and motivate improvements to the practice of medicine.

“I am very excited to be joining Drugs in Context as editor-in-chief at a pivotal stage in the journal’s development,” said Blanchette. “Over the coming months, one of my main objectives is to recruit new specialist subject area editors and associated editorial advisory board members to represent specific areas of pharmacotherapy research that will drive improvements in disease management in real-world medicine over the coming decade.”

Drugs in Context, first launched in 2003, is published by JUST Medical Media Limited.
