Starting on April 1, Mary K. Crow, MD, will step into the dual roles of physician-in-chief and chair of the division of rheumatology at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York.
Dr. Crow, who is an internationally recognized research scientist, a leader in the field of rheumatology and autoimmunity research and clinical practice, and a former ACR president, will bring her expertise to her new role at HSS.
The selection process involved an international search conducted by representatives from the scientific and clinical community at HSS and New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York. This search committee reviewed and examined some of the most outstanding leaders in academic rheumatology before selecting Dr. Crow. She will remain co-director of the Mary Kirkland Center for Lupus Research and director of the Autoimmunity and Inflammation Research Program at HSS.
