Daugherty Named Editor of Major Journal, Receives Award from AHA

Published: Dec 6, 2011

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 6, 2011) — Alan Daugherty, senior associate dean for research in the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and director of the UK Saha Cardiovascular Research Center, has recently received two major honors from the American Heart Association, including being named editor-in-chief of a major scientific journal.

 

Daugherty has been named the new editor-in-chief of the AHA journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology (ATVB). He will assume this role during the first half of the 2012 calendar year. ATVB is a pre-eminent peer-reviewed academic journal chronicling the latest advancements in cardiovascular research.

 

“Alan Daugherty is internationally recognized in the cardiovascular research field,” said Dr. Frederick C. de Beer, dean of the College of Medicine and vice president for clinical academic affairs. “His recent appointment as editor-in-chief of ATVB, one of the premier academic journals in the field, is a testament of his commitment to excellence.”

 

Daugherty also recently accepted a 2011 ATVB Special Recognition Award in Vascular Biology. This award honors an outstanding member of the American Heart Association's Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology. Presented during the recent AHA Scientific Sessions in Orlando, Fla., the award recognizes major contributions to the affairs of the scientific council over a continuing period of time, as well as substantial professional contributions to the field.

 

Since coming to UK in 1997, Daugherty has served in positions including professor of medicine, professor of physiology, and director of atherosclerosis research for the UK Gill Heart Institute. In addition to his roles as senior associate dean for research and director of the Saha CVRC, he holds the Gill Foundation Endowed Chair in Preventive Cardiology, is the associate chair of medicine for physician scientist development, serves as professor of medicine and physiology, and is a member of the nutritional sciences and toxicology graduate programs at UK.

 

Prior to coming to UK, Daugherty was on the faculty at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and previously served as a British Heart Foundation Research Fellow at the University of Bath, United Kingdom.

 

Daugherty holds an undergraduate degree from Sunderland Polytechnic, United Kingdom, and doctoral degrees from the University of Bath.

 

“Alan has played an important role in pushing the College of Medicine’s research endeavors forward,” de Beer said. “We are lucky to have such talent. He is very deserving of the 2011 ATVB Special Recognition Award in Vascular Biology.”
