I look forward to working with the newly appointed Editor-in-Chief, Professor Didier Samuel and his editorial team. The management and cure of, for instance, infectious liver diseases like Hepatitis B and C as well as the advanced search for the basic mechanisms of liver failure are major and global challenges of the 21st century.
