Message from President-Elect

To my colleague members of the International Society of Neuropathology,

In mid-July, I received an e-mail from my friend and colleague, Seth Love, the President of the ISN, to inform me that I would be the next ISN President. As he put it, I would be “captain of the ship.” The metaphor made me smile—not because I am a committed boatsman, but because it reminded me of some fond neuropathology-boat connections that I have had over the years.
