Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) welcome Professor Antonio Ceriello, MD, as the new Editor-in-Chief of Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice (DRCP), the official journal of IDF, published by Elsevier.

For more than 25 years, DRCP has been an important journal for the publication and promotion of global research and care in diabetes. DRCP is home to the scientific publications that accompany the IDF Diabetes Atlas as well as the results of many ground-breaking randomized clinical trials.

Professor Ceriello will take over from Professor Stephen Colagiuri, MD (University of Sydney), on July 1st. He is affiliated with the Institut d’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS) in Barcelona, Spain and the Department of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases at IRCCS MultiMedica in Milan, Italy. Discussing his new appointment, Prof. Ceriello said: “It is a pleasure to serve as Editor-in-Chief of DRCP. I will endeavor to continue the excellent work done by Stephen Colagiuri, supported both by my previous experience as Associate Editor of other prestigious journals and by the team at DRCP”.

Retiring Editor-in-Chief Professor Colagiuri commented: “It has been an honor to serve as Editor-in-Chief of DRCP for the past eight years and to see the journal become the official journal of IDF and grow in reputation and impact. I would like to thank the many Associate Editors I have had the good fortune to work with and to welcome Professor Ceriello as the new Editor-in-Chief who I am sure will take the journal to a new level.”

IDF President Dr. Shaukat Sadikot said, “IDF is proud that a great deal of our research has been published in DRCP. This journal has published important research on the epidemiology of diabetes, prevention of complications, type 2 diabetes prevention and new classification criteria. We expect that DRCP will continue to be the journal of choice for international health professionals and clinically-oriented scientists who are investigating topics related to diabetes clinical research and patient care.”
