by Jena Passut EyeWorld Staff Writer



The journal Cornea is getting a transplant.

Alan Sugar, M.D., professor of ophthalmology, Kellogg Eye Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, will take over as editor on Jan. 1.

"I've been involved with several journals over many years, and I have an interest in that, as well as an interest in clinical research," Dr. Sugar said. Dr. Sugar, 67, has served since 2008 as an associate editor of Cornea, which is published monthly by Lippincott Willliams & Wilkins and has a core audience of corneal specialists and general ophthalmologists interested in the subspecialty. Editors serve in 4-year terms.

Dr. Sugar belongs to more than 20 professional societies and has had 183 articles published in various journals. He also has written or co-written 53 book chapters on ophthalmology.

Gail Reggio, executive director of The Cornea Society, which sponsors the journal, said Cornea should benefit from Dr. Sugar's vast experience, both with the journal and over his distinguished career in ophthalmology.

"Dr. Sugar will continue to provide excellent leadership at Cornea," Ms. Reggio said.
