Dr Eduardo Cazap appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of ecancer

After twelve years of leading the cause of making cancer information and education accessible to everyone, ecancer bids a grateful farewell to Prof Gordon Mcvie as Editor-in-Chief.

ecancer was founded by Prof Gordon McVie and Prof Umberto Veronesi in 2007. They shared a mission to improve cancer communication and education by breaking down geographical and financial barriers. Together, they created ecancer as an open access journal featuring multi-media content, such as video interviews with international cancer experts and online educational modules, all available for free.

Prof Gordon McVie announced his retirement from the role of Editor-in-Chief at the end of 2018 but will continue to support the journal as a member of the Editorial Board. The whole ecancer team would like to thank him for his pioneering vision and unwavering support of the journal which has taken it from strength to strength over the years.

Prof McVie will be succeeded in post by Dr Eduardo Cazap MD, PhD, FASCO.

We are honoured to welcome our new Editor-in-Chief, Dr Eduardo Cazap, who assumes his duties on the 1st of April 2019. We are excited to work with Dr Cazap, a longstanding and much-esteemed member of our Editorial Board whose insight has been invaluable. Dr Cazap has a clear vision for the journal and the ecancer Global Foundation, the charity which supports it.

A native of Buenos Aires, Dr Cazap brings over forty years of experience to ecancer. He is the founder and the first president of the Latin American & Caribbean Society of Medical Oncology (SLACOM), was elected as a Board Member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and was the president of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) from 2010 to 2012. Dr Cazap’s main areas of clinical expertise are breast and cervical cancer. He is particularly experienced in global cancer control and the role of cancer in public policy, and he plans to lead ecancer in building on and developing its impact these areas.

"Cancer is, today, a problem for the whole of society, and cancer control has become one of the core principles in public policy," says Dr Cazap. "I envision, together with the exceptional ecancer team, a new period of expansion in the coming years."

"Few folk are as 'global' as Dr Cazap!" says Professor McVie. "I shall be on the touchline watching and advising the outstanding ecancer team, and look forward to the leadership of Eduardo Cazap."
