Keeping my words short with the large amount of material contributed to this issue—just check out the table of contents! I would, however, like to draw your attention to a new column this month: "Meet Our New NICHD Fellows." On a quarterly basis, we will publish a brief introduction of fellows who have joined our institute over the preceding few months. If you recognize one of our new fellows in the hall or at a seminar, please be sure to give them a warm welcome. Who knows, that fellow might become your next collaborator.
Your Editor in Chief,
Shana R. Spindler, PhD
