Brief Bio:
Fiona Godlee has been Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ since 2005. She qualified as a
doctor in 1985, trained as a general physician in Cambridge and London, and is a Fellow of the
Royal College of Physicians. Since joining the BMJ in 1990 she has written on a broad range of
issues, including the impact of environmental degradation on health, the future of the World
Health Organisation, the ethics of academic publication, and the problems of editorial peer

In 1994 she spent a year at Harvard University as a Harkness Fellow evaluating efforts to
bridge the gap between medical research and practice. On returning to the UK, she led the
development of BMJ Clinical Evidence, which evaluates the best available evidence on the
benefits and harms of treatments and is now provided worldwide to over a million clinicians in 9
languages. In 2000 she moved to Current Science Group to establish the open access online
publisher BioMed Central as Editorial Director for Medicine. In 2003 she returned to the BMJ
