We would like to announce the following changes in the editorship of the EJNMMI Journal Family, effective from the 1st January 2019.
Prof. Ignasi Carrió, Hospital Sant Pau, Spain, decided to retire from his position as the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (EJNMMI) after 15 years of service.
We would like to thank Prof. Carrió for all his dedication and commitment to EJNMMI and express our sincere gratitude. During his time as Editor-in-Chief, EJNMMI has become the world-leading journal in nuclear medicine and following his vision, four new journals were launched under the umbrella of EJNMMI, giving rise to the EJNMMI Journal Family. Prof. Carrió will therefore always be known as the founding father of the EJNMMI Journal Family.
We are pleased to announce that Prof. Arturo Chiti, Humanitas University, Italy, is the new Editor-in-Chief of EJNMMI, effective 1st January 2019. We are also pleased to announce that succeeding him as Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Hybrid Imaging is Prof. Francesco Giammarile, University Hospital Lyon, France.
Prof. Chiti is the Full Professor in Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy at the Humanitas University in Milan and the Director of the Nuclear Medicine Department at the Humanitas Research Hospital. From 2015-2016 he was the President of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM). Prof. Chiti became the first Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Hybrid Imaging in 2016, and we thank him for his immense engagement in ensuring an outstanding start for the newest journal of the EJNMMI Journal Family. We are glad to welcome him as the Editor-in-Chief of EJNMMI.
Prof. Giammarile is a Professor in the academic Nuclear Medicine Department of University Hospital Lyon and a Senior Technical Officer at the International Atomic Energy Agency. He is also the EANM Congress Chair for 2017-2019.
