Robert Steiner, MD, Professor, Department of Pediatrics and Molecular & Medical Genetics, was recently named Deputy Editor for the journal Genetics in Medicine (GIM), beginning January 2012.
“It’s an honor to have been named Deputy Editor of this prestigious journal, the official journal of the American College of Medical Genetics,” said Dr. Steiner. “I look forward to working with the Editor, Jim Evans, Managing Editor Jan McColm, a fantastic group of section editors, and Nature Publishing Group to build on the journal’s reputation as a leading journal in clinical genetics.”
The American College of Medical Genetics is the largest professional association of medical geneticists in the United States. The mission of its journal is to enhance the knowledge and practice of medical genetics.
GIM has been an invaluable resource for the medical genetics community over the past 20 years. Recently, the journal was ranked in the top 15% of all Genetics journals—based on articles being cited as references.*
A peer-reviewed monthly journal, GIM publishes original research papers in contemporary genetic medicine, including such areas as genomics, chromosome abnormalities, metabolic diseases, the clinical application of next-generation sequencing, single gene disorders, genetics and the law, and all levels of education in human medical genetics.
