PRESTIGIOUS ROLE FOR LINCOLN PROFESSOR

 

A University of Lincoln professor has added another string to his academic bow by being invited to join the editorial board of the leading international medical journal   ‘Leukemia Research’.

 

Prof Hassan Hassan, Director of the Lincolnshire Institute for Health based at the university’s Brayford campus, has been appointed to the board for three years.

 

His role will involve refereeing scientific papers, recommending subjects to be covered in the journal, attending editorial board meetings and advising on editorial policy.

 

‘Leukemia Research’ is a leading medical research journal published by Elsevier Science in Oxford.

 

News of the invitation to join the editorial board delighted Prof Hassan, who also became a member of the council of the National Conference of University Professors in August 2001.

 

“It’s really excellent news because ‘Leukemia Research’ is a particularly prestigious international journal,” he said.

 

“The board is made up of 20 professors of oncology who are experts in their field and I’m honoured to be invited to join them.”

 

Prof Hassan took up his post as Director of the Lincolnshire Institute for Health in April this year.
