Dr Daniel Prieto-Alhambra, Senior Clinical Research Fellow at NDORMS has been elected co-chair of the International Society of Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE) Academic Council.

ISPE is a "non-profit international professional membership organisation dedicated to advancing the health of the public". The organisation aims to provide an open forum for the exchange of scientific information and its members represent the various scientific disciplines involved in the study of the effects of drugs (both risks and benefits) in large populations using observational methods. The Academic Council's mission within ISPE is to represent the academic members of the pharmacoepidemiology community and their interests.

Speaking of his appointment, Dr Prieto-Alhambra says: "ISPE is a growing scientific society with representation from industry, regulators, and academics. I will be honored to co-chair (this year) and prospectively chair (in the coming two years) the academic council, and to therefore represent the interests of academics in such a large international organisation".
