Professor Cheng Hock Toh, from the Institute of Infection and Global Health, has been elected President of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

The Society promotes improved care for patients with bleeding tendencies, which includes haemophilia and deep vein thrombosis, and Professor Toh’s research interest is in how infection promotes clot formation, and is supported by Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Professor Ian Greer.

The 58th Annual Meeting of the Scientific Committee will be held in Liverpool next year. Professor Toh said: “The meeting programme will have an overall focus on promoting translational medicine and will reach out beyond traditional audiences to especially engage with young clinical investigators as well as industry and patients.”
