Editors from two of medicine’s most respected journals—the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine—will share their insights during two ATS International Conference forums.

Derek C. Angus, MD, MPH, JAMA contributing editor, and Jeffrey M. Drazen, MD, NEJM editor-in-chief, will moderate today’s forum focusing on critical care research. Dr. Drazen; Howard Bauchner, MD, JAMA editor-in-chief; and Elisabeth H. Bel, MD, PhD, head of respiratory medicine at the Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, will moderate Tuesday’s forum on pulmonary research.

Both sessions will be from 2 to 4:30 p.m. in Room 119 A-B (100 Level) Pennsylvania Convention Center.

During each program, attendees will hear six oral presentations by the authors, many of whom will present research published in recent publications or at the time of the conference. Editors selected these papers because of their significant importance to the field of pulmonary and critical care medicine.
