We are sad and a little apprehensive that Dr. Ramprasad Kurpad, our Scientific Editor has decided, due to personal reasons to leave back to India. Sad because it is not at all difficult to like Dr. Ram and, apprehensive because we came to depend a great deal on his outstanding abilities for the publication of our Journal and it will be difficult to replace him.

He has the qualities which are rare to come by that make the ideal person for a Scientific Editor of a Kidney Journal - wide knowledge in nephrology, critical mind, ability to rapidly assess the quality of a paper, an exceptional knack in renovating a paper badly presented, but with scientific merit, into a superb one.

He managed to gain the respect of all of us and all those connected with the Journal by his confident modesty, calm determination to get things done and an extraordinary ability to do so many things at the same time without appearing to be hassled.

Dr. Ram joined us seven years ago having previous to that worked in one of the best centers in nephrology and transplantation in India.

We will miss his contribution, sense of humor and dedication to his work.

We wish him the best of luck in the future.
