Daugherty is Editor-in-Chief of American Heart Association Journal for Second Term

Alan Daugherty, senior associate dean for research at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, was recently approved to renew his contract as editor-in-chief of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association (ATVB) for a second five-year term. ATVB is one of the five core journals of the American Heart Association.

As editor of ATVB, Daugherty’s primary focus is on publishing the most important new research studies related to a spectrum of vascular diseases. “We’re also committed to presenting fair and balanced reviews of critical issues in the subject areas we cover,” he said.

Daugherty also serves as director of the Saha Cardiovascular Research Center, Gill Foundation Chair in Preventive Cardiology, chair of the Department of Physiology, and professor of physiology and medicine at UK

Daugherty has been on faculty at the UK for almost two decades. During this time, there has been a strong growth in a group of internationally-recognized cardiovascular researchers. The Saha Cardiovascular Research Center was established in 2005 and provides campus-wide activities to augment investigations into diseases that have high prevalence in Kentucky. These activities include organization of the annual Cardiovascular Research Day that will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017.
