ILAR Journal

Adewale O. Adebajo, MD

I am excited by the prospect of using my experience and expertise to build on the great work which Carlos Pineda and others have done with ILAR Clinical Rheumatology and I would like to take the journal to the next level. I intend to harness the world leading publishing expertise and resources of Springer Nature to further ILAR’s mission of raising awareness, education and research in musculoskeletal conditions across the globe. I believe that rheumatology is an important specialty which requires a higher profile, which can partly be achieved by progressing postgraduate rheumatology through ILAR Clinical Rheumatology.
