Libertas is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Dr Steven R. Myers, founding Editor-in -Chief of the Journal of Medical Education and Curricular Development.
We would like to take this opportunity to remember his commitment and dedication to the success of Journal of Medical Education and Curricular Development and the professionalism with which he approached the journal's establishment and operation.
Dr Myers was Professor and Associate Chair for Professional Education in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Louisville and was very active and successful in international educational and research collaborations. He had an active research career including studies of drug and xenobiotic metabolism and biomarkers of chemical exposure and effects. He developed the first widely applicable biomarker for human exposure to PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) through his development of chromatographic and mass spec techniques which allowed the detection of hemoglobin adducts of PAH in maternal and fetal blood.
We extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues at this difficult time.
