Dr. Joseph Hill named editor-in-chief of Circulation -

Dr. Joseph Hill, Chief of UT Southwestern Medical Center's Division of Cardiology and Director of the Harry S. Moss Heart Center, has been selected as the forthcoming editor-in-chief for the American Heart Association's principal scientific journal, Circulation.

Circulation, published weekly, is the American Heart Association's peer-reviewed scientific journal providing original research, commentary, and related discussion for cardiologists, cardiovascular scientists, cardiovascular surgeons, electrophysiologists, and others who work in the field of cardiovascular medicine.

Dr. Hill, who holds the James T. Willerson, M.D., Distinguished Chair in Cardiovascular Diseases, and the Frank M. Ryburn Jr. Chair in Heart Research, will assume leadership of Circulation on July 1, 2016, and will hold that position for five years. At the end of that term, he will be eligible for a second five-year term.

As editor-in-chief, Dr. Hill will oversee the peer-review process that determines which articles merit publication and will be responsible for the overall content of Circulation, including design of the journal. In addition to overseeing Circulation, Dr. Hill will be responsible for the six Circulation subspecialty journals, Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics, Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging, Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions, Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, and Circulation: Heart Failure.

Dr. Hill's research focuses on molecular mechanisms of structural, functional, and electrophysiological remodeling in cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. Dr. Hill joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2002 and is a three-time recipient of the medical school's Outstanding Teacher Award.
