Michael Saag, MD, director of the UAB Center for AIDS Research and professor in the School of Medicine Division of Infectious Diseases, has been named an editor of the Journal of the International AIDS Society, also known as AIDS.
"It is an honor to serve as an editor of AIDS, as the journal is one of the most prestigious in the field and has been serving investigators and clinicians since 1987," Saag said. "I look forward to continuing the outstanding service of editors before me."
As editor, Saag will help review advances in the field of HIV and AIDS research and treatment. In the past 30 years, he has published more than 260 articles in peer-reviewed journals and pioneered many trials for antiviral drugs now commonly used for HIV treatment, as well as founded UAB's 1917 Clinic, among many other accomplishments.
