In 2019, the Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease (JCDD) began a series of Special Issues entitled “Leaders in Cardiovascular Research” in which we will highlight the work and achievements of outstanding and unique researchers that have made major and often paradigm-shifting contributions to the field.
The next publication in this series will focus on the many accomplishments of Prof Robert H. Anderson, who is acknowledged worldwide as the current leading cardiac anatomist and foremost expert on embryonic heart developmental morphology. Over a career of more than 50 years, Bob has collaborated widely and productively and has been the person to whom researchers have turned to help to unravel the mysteries of heart morphogenesis. These collaborations have spanned the spectrum, from clinical cardiac surgery and pathology, to molecular investigations of embryonic cardiovascular development in human and many other species.
This commemorative issue will contain a series of commissioned scientific papers and reviews on topics to which Prof Anderson has made essential contributions. In addition, authors interested in participating in this Special Issue, on any topic in which the work of Prof Anderson has been instrumental, are invited to contact the Guest Editors.
Prof Deborah J Henderson
