After six years of distinguished service to the journal, Dr. Gary W. Miller will complete his term as Editor-in-Chief of Toxicological Sciences at the end of the month. Dr. Miller reflects on his tenure as Editor in his final “From the Editor’s Desk” remarks, which appear in the June 2019 edition of ToxSci—Volume 169, Issue 2:
“This is my last Look Inside ToxSci. I have enjoyed drawing attention to the outstanding research published in Toxicological Sciences. I thank our Associate Editors who have penned the dozens of highlights, the investigators who conducted the research and submitted the manuscripts to ToxSci, and the reviewers who provided the scientific evaluation. It has been an honor serving as a steward for the Journal, the Society of Toxicology, and the field in general. Understanding how our environment impacts our health is critical for our future. The world needs experts in the science of toxicology and Toxicological Sciences is proud to serve as a platform for their important work. As we complete our transition to the new editor, Dr. Jeffrey Peters, I encourage you to continue looking inside ToxSci for the most influential research in the field of toxicology.”
