Happy birthday Professor Zanchetti!

The Board of Management of the Journal of Hypertension is pleased to congratulate our editor, Professor Alberto Zanchetti, on the occasion of his 90th birthday which takes place on July 27th 2016.

Alberto ZanchettiThe journal has flourished under his outstanding leadership for the last 17 years and stands as a source of pride for both the International Society of Hypertension and the European Society of Hypertension. It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Other journals have adopted some of the innovations that Professor Zanchetti has brought to the Journal such as the invited Commentaries and the referees’ comments that enhance the appreciation of the original articles and add perspective for the reader. The balance between the original articles and invited reviews, as well as the diversity of the topics considered, and the worldwide origin of submissions are reflective of Professor Zanchetti’s broad view of the field and his recognition of the important role played by the journal as representative of both the sponsoring societies. He has put together an outstanding group of associate editors, an able and diligent editorial staff, and a diverse editorial board, all of whom contribute importantly to the success of the Journal. 

Happy birthday Professor Zanchetti!

Lewis Landsberg, for the Board of Management
