Respected long-time medical and science publisher Jane Hunter has joined Faculty of 1000 as its new Managing Director.

Faculty of 1000, which is a member of Science Navigation Group, is a unique online service that keeps scientists and clinicians informed of high-impact articles in biology and medicine.

These key articles are selected and evaluated by a distinguished international group of over 5000 experts, called Faculty Members.

Ms Hunter said: “This is a tremendous opportunity to be involved in a project and a field that I am passionate about. F1000 is building on its reputation as the expert’s guide to biology and medicine, and there are considerable avenues for business growth.”

Ms Hunter will have overall responsibility for all aspects of the business and answer to a Board of Directors that includes Chairman Vitek Tracz, Group Director Anne Greenwood, Group Finance Director Brett Hassell and Group Chief Executive Andrew Crompton.

Her most recent role was at Springer Science+Business Media, heading Current Medicine Group. She previously worked with Vitek Tracz as Managing Director of Science Press Internet Services, which she developed into a successful business.

Mr Tracz said: “We are very pleased to be working with Jane again and know that she can bring a fresh outlook to the company as we move towards relaunching and vastly improving our website early next year.”
