Rho Principal Investigator Accepts Prestigious Editorial Board Appointment

Published: Mar 22, 2011

Chapel Hill, NC – – Dr. David Iklé has been invited to join the American Journal of Transplantation (AJT) Editorial Board as a Statistical Editor. Dr. Iklé's invitation was based on his contributions to transplantation literature in general, contributions to AJT in particular, the thoughtful and attentive reviews he has conducted of previous manuscripts, and his reputation as a thought leader in the field of transplantation, specifically as it applies to statistical methodologies. Statistical editor is a new category of editor for AJT. The category has been added to facilitate proper management of manuscripts whose results rely on more complex statistical methods. Dr. Iklé will be one of three statistical editors.
