Dr. Eric Rubin to Replace Dr. Jeffrey Drazen as Editor-in-Chief of NEJM

Once again, the Massachusetts Medical Society selected a professor from the Harvard School of Public Health, to replace Dr. Jeffrey Drazen as the Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr. Eric Rubin is an endowed professor of Immunology & Infectious Disease and Chairman of the Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases at Harvard School of Public Health. Harvard University, its medical school and its School of Public Health have deep corporate and academic ties to the pharmaceutical industry whose inordinate influence is a matter of public record.  Harvard serves as a major training and recruiting center for key leadership positions in medicine, public health and public policy.

Dr. Rubin’s research lab focuses on developing a vaccine for tuberculosis, and on new infectious diseases spread by mosquitoes — such as Zika and dengue. Question is, will Dr. Rubin follow in Dr. Drazen’s footsteps or in the prior Editors-in-Chief  — Dr. Marcia Angell and Dr. Jerome Kassirer — who denounce academic medicine’s financial ties to industry?  Read more at AHRP here.
