The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) announces the election of Joost Meijers, Ph.D., as the next Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) Vice-Chair. He will serve as Vice-Chair for 2020-2022 alongside SSC Chair Marc Carrier. Meijers will serve as SSC Chair for the 2022-2024 term.

Meijers is Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Hemostasis at Sanquin Research, staff member at the Department of Experimental Vascular Medicine of the Amsterdam University Medical Centers, as well as Professor of Experimental Vascular Medicine at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. A member of the ISTH for more than 30 years, Meijers has served in several other roles including as Chair of the SSC Subcommittee on Factor XI and the Contact System, Chair of the WHO-ISTH Standards Liaison Group and as a member of the SSC Executive Committee.  

In his vision statement, Meijers wrote, "The SSC is the backbone of our society, and contributes to the ISTH’s mission in many ways including the development of standards and providing guidance and guidelines. It is my aim to maintain the quality of the SSC by working with the ISTH council and the chairs of the subcommittees."

Meijers's term as Vice-Chair will begin at the conclusion of the ISTH 2020 Virtual Congress in July.
