The Board of Publications received a number of applications from highly qualified SOT members; we appreciate their interest in leading the journal. Dr. Peters will officially start on July 1, 2019. We look forward to his vision and enthusiasm as he initiates his leadership of the journal and continues ToxSci's rise in prestige and significance to the toxicology community and beyond.
