Meet the new Editor-in-Chief of PLOS Medicine

We are delighted to be introducing the new Editor-in-Chief of PLOS Medicine, Prof. Dr. Till Bärnighausen! He brings with him a wealth of expertise and experience in the major drivers of good health, as well as interventions that can improve and support health at population level. 

Major new movements in health systems worldwide [...] require design research to create interventions and evaluation research to establish causal impact, performance, and social and economic value. PLOS Medicine should strive to be the first choice for researchers to publish ground-breaking research on solutions to the world’s largest and most pressing health problems.
