Editorial Announcement Regarding Professor John Walker-Smith

Free Access

The editors of JPGN is pleased to announce that a high court judge has nullified any finding of professional misconduct against Professor John Walker-Smith in relation to the Wakefield debacle. Prof Walker-Smith has made significant contributions to the understanding and treatment of paediatric gastrointestinal diseases, such as coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease. He has helped characterise cow's milk–sensitive enteropathy, worked tirelessly within the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition to help establish practical diagnostic criteria for coeliac disease, and served as an editor-in-chief of JPGN. He has taught and trained young paediatric gastroenterologists from countries around the world, many of whom are now leaders in our field. In June 2010, the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition awarded Prof Walker-Smith the well deserved and first Distinguished Service Award.
