Neil Poulter - New President-Elect of ISH

Professor Neil R. Poulter was made President-Elect of the ISH at the recent Council meeting in Milan. He will be President from September 2016 to October 2018. Neil Poulter is the current chairman of Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine at Imperial College London, UK and the Co-Director of the Imperial Clinical Trials Unit.

Neil PoulterHe has lived and worked in Africa, the Caribbean and Australia and has coordinated many multinational studies. Hence, he is a truly global researcher who has published about 400 papers, mostly on high blood pressure issues. Neil Poulter intends to focus on the promotion of two key areas:

  • Firstly, enhanced implementation of what we already know about how to improve blood pressure control globally.
  • Secondly, how to fill the gaps in our knowledge concerning what combination of drugs are optimal for blood pressure lowering and cardiovascular disease prevention in each of the world's major ethnic groups.

Neil Poulter is a learned and respected colleague and a good friend of many of us. He has a very high integrity, good common sense, and a lovely sense of humour. I believe, he will make a very good President of ISH.
