Fuster to Succeed DeMaria as Editor of JACC

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has announced that Valentin Fuster will be the next editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC). Fuster will succeed the current editor, Anthony DeMaria, beginning in 2014.

JACC has long been committed to bringing the newest and most innovative research to cardiovascular professionals, and Dr. Fuster brings unmatched prestige and expertise to the role of editor and we trust he will continue and expand on this tradition,” said ACC President John G. Harold, in a press release.

Fuster has long been one of the most influential figures in cardiology. He is probably best known for his pioneering research demonstrating the concept of “vulnerable plaque,” but he has been involved in many of the major developments in cardiology in recent decades.

Fuster has been the recipient of seemingly innumerable honors and awards. A former president of the American Heart Association, he is the physician-in-chief at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York and also serves as the director of the Zena and Michael A. Wiener Cardiovascular Institute and the Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Center for Cardiovascular Health at Mount Sinai. Most recently he was the principal investigator of the influential FREEDOM trial. Fuster was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1943. JACC is published by Elsevier.

    JACC moves to the ‘City which never sleeps…’ and at Its top the Man who never sleeps!
    That makes sense.
    Congratulations professor Fuster.
