Date:7/29/2009

PHILADELPHIA, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Roberto Bolli, M.D., is the new editor-in-chief of Circulation Research: Journal of the American Heart Association.

Bolli, chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and director of the Institute of Molecular Cardiology at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, will assume his role with the July 31 issue of the journal, posted online on July 30.

"It is an honor and a privilege to serve as editor-in-chief of this prestigious and critically important scientific journal," Bolli said. "In an era of incredibly rapid progress in cardiovascular medicine, the scientific discoveries leading to the next generation of clinical advances will appear first in the pages of Circulation Research."

Circulation Research, the official bi-weekly journal of the American Heart Association's Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences, is devoted to new basic science research from all disciplines related to cardiac and vascular biology and cardiovascular disease. The journal presents the most significant research from fields including cellular biology, molecular biology and molecular genetics, as well as biochemistry, biophysics, pathology, physiology and pharmacology.

Each issue of Circulation Research features reports on molecular medicine, cellular biology and integrative physiology. Respected investigators and clinicians present editorials and authoritative reviews on topics of special interest, providing readers with indispensable perspectives on new and emerging scientific concepts.

"We are on the threshold of amazing new discoveries in areas such as regenerative cardiology, embryonic development of the heart and blood vessels and the genetics of cardiovascular disease," Bolli said. "My associate editors and I are eager to meet the challenge of guiding the journal through the next phase in its evolution."

The July 31 issue of Circulation Research will include a cover redesign as part of numerous upcoming changes. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a division of Wolters Kluwer Health.

The journal's Web site, http://circres.ahajournals.org, has also been redesigned and streamlined, facilitating browsing and quick access to featured articles and "Online First" papers. Subscribers and readers have access to the journal's expanded online archive, including the complete history of the journal from the 1950s to the present.

With an impact factor of 9.989, Circulation Research is ranked No. 3 among 78 journals in cardiac and cardiovascular systems, No. 2 among 56 journals in peripheral vascular disease and No. 3 among 62 journals in hematology, according to the 2008 ISI Journal Citation Reports(R), published by Thomson Scientific.

"The breathtaking pace of new discoveries in the basic science of cardiology makes the appointment of a new editor of Circulation Research a noteworthy event," said Donna Arnett, Ph.D., chairperson of the American Heart Association's Scientific Publishing Committee. "We recognize the service and achievement of Dr. Eduardo Marban, outgoing editor-in-chief, and we are certain that Dr. Bolli and his team will continue to build on the journal's long history of scientific excellence."
