Changes in leadership for Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy

We are delighted to welcome Dr Philip Scheltens to his new position as one of the Editors-in-Chief of Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy, joining Dr Douglas Galasko (University of California, San Diego, USA) and Dr Todd Golde (University of Florida, USA). Dr Scheltens is replacing Dr Gordon Wilcock (University of Oxford, UK), who is stepping down from this role after many valuable years of guidance as Editor-in-Chief.

Dr Scheltens is Professor of Cognitive Neurology and Director of the Alzheimer Centre at the VU University Medical Centre in Amsterdam, which he founded in 2000. Dr Scheltens is active in the field of biomarkers and clinical trials, with his main clinical and research interests including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, magnetic resonance imaging, PET imaging and biomarkers.

This wide-ranging research knowledge compliments Dr Galasko’s and Dr Golde’s expertise, and we are looking forward to working with Dr Scheltens to continue the success and growth of the journal.

Dr Scheltens commented, “I am excited to join my esteemed colleagues to lead the journal. The field of Alzheimer’s disease is going through a very interesting and exciting phase and the journal is rightly positioned to make some important contributions to this field.”

The journal is affiliated to Alzheimer’s Disease International and the Editors-in-Chief are supported by a world-renowned Editorial Board.
