Portions of this post originally appeared in an editorial by Mauricio Castillo in the January 2014 issue. They have been reproduced here in modified form.
As many of our readers may know by now, we are terribly saddened by the passing of our colleague and Senior Editor, Dr Lucien Levy. Lucien brought with him considerable enthusiasm and knowledge regarding advanced neuroimaging and was a true gentleman. An obituary with details about his life is also published in this issue of the American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR).
We welcome Dr Jody Tanabe as our new Senior Editor in charge of advanced imaging. She is currently Professor of Radiology, Psychiatry, and Neurology at the University of Colorado, where she is also Chief of Neuroradiology. She was a radiology resident at Cornell Medical School, a neuroradiology fellow at the University of California, San Francisco, and, before moving to Denver, a neuroradiologist at New York University. Dr Tanabe’s main areas of interest are neuroimaging of psychiatric and personality disorders and drug addiction, for which she has been awarded 7 NIH and foundation grants as principal investigator. She is a regular member of an NIH study section. Please join us here at AJNR in welcoming her; we are indeed lucky to have such a respected researcher to help us make our journal even better.
Case of the Week, Section Editors
Dr Girish Fatterpekar is stepping down as the Section Editor for Case of the Week after having taken it over from Dr Castillo in 2010. The AJNR would like to welcome Dr Sapna Rawal, from the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada, and Dr Juan Pablo Cruz, from Pontifica Universidad Catolica de Chile in Santiago, Chile. They will serve as co-Section Editors of the Case of the Week, while Dr Fatterpekar will now focus exclusively on the Case of the Month.
