L’dor vador, transliterated from the Hebrew above, is an ancient concept in Judaic scripture meaning “from generation to generation,” which is now generally interpreted to mean that we have a responsibility to pass on teachings to future generations. It has been 5 years that I have been at the helm of the Duke-UNC Editorial Board of the Journal of Clinical Investigation and have had the privilege of publishing scientific knowledge that will be passed on to generations of future scientists. Now, with the selection of Dr. Gordon Tomaselli as the next editor in chief, I pass on the editorial duties for the JCI to him and his team at Johns Hopkins.
