Congratulations to Professor Adrian Newland CBE from the Blizard Institute who has been elected as President of the International Society of Hematology (ISH). He will take up the post for a period of two years from September this year.
Professor Newland comments: “I am honoured to have been elected the next President of the ISH and to continue the work of the Society in developing educational opportunities for developing countries. I will be working with national societies and the three divisions of the Society – the Inter-American, Asian-Pacific and the European-African Divisions – to pursue these aims.”
Professor Newland was previously Chair of the Education and Training Committee and helped develop the Society’s journal 'Hematology', which is now available electronically to ISH members, and of which he is a senior editor. In addition to supporting local meetings of the Society, he will be holding its international meeting in Glasgow in 2016, showcasing developments in haematology and training opportunities.
