On behalf of the entire Editorial Board, we thank Dr. Alan Artru from the University of Washington for sharing his expertise, for exercising excellent judgment, and for helping countless authors improve their work over the past 28 years. Although Dr. Artru has retired from JNA's Editorial Board, his contributions to our journal will extend throughout the future.
At the same time, we thank Dr. Ira Kass for moving from the general Editorial Board to replace Dr. Artru as a Laboratory Investigations Editor. Like Dr. Artru, Dr. Kass has served on JNA's Editorial Board since 1988. We look forward to his continuing contribution as a Laboratory Investigations Editor.
