Mackowiak was selected following a rigorous nationwide search by the JMCP Editor-in-Chief Search Committee, a group comprised of AMCP leaders and JMCP Editorial Advisory Board members.

"We reviewed several excellent candidates for this position," said Eric Cannon, a member of the AMCP Board of Directors and the Chair of the JMCP Search Committee. "John's vast qualifications, including his many years of research experience and vision for JMCP moving forward, provided the winning edge."

Mackowiak most recently has been an independent outcomes researcher focusing on research design, assessment instrument development, data analysis, economic modeling and scientific writing. He also has served as the Director of Outcomes Research for pharmaceutical manufacturer Glaxo and Glaxo Wellcome, and was an Associate Professor and Acting Division Chair at the College of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

Mackowiak earned a Ph.D. in Pharmacy Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree with honors and a Master of Science in Pharmacy Administration from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

"We are delighted to have John take over the reins of JMCP, one of the most highly respected medical journals in the country today," said AMCP Chief Executive Officer Edith A. Rosato, RPh, IOM. "We look forward to his tenure at AMCP and the continuation of JMCP as a platform for publishing important research on the value of pharmaceutical products and managed pharmacy benefits, which cover more than 200 million Americans."

JMCP publishes peer-reviewed original research manuscripts, subject reviews, and other content intended to advance the use of the scientific method, including the interpretation of research findings in managed care pharmacy. The journal is dedicated to improving the quality of care delivered to patients served by managed care pharmacy by providing its readers with the results of scientific investigation and evaluation of clinical, health, service, and economic outcomes of pharmacy services and pharmaceutical interventions, including formulary management.
