I am delighted to announce that the Journal of Forensic Sciences (JFS) has appointed a new Associate Editor (AE), Marta Concheiro-Guisan, PharmD, PhD. Dr. Concheiro-Guisan is Assistant Professor in Toxicology, Department of Sciences, at John Jay College of Criminal Justice – City University of New York. She has assumed the AE responsibilities previously held by Dr. Sarah Kerrigan, who recently stepped down from her JFS AE role for toxicology.

My thanks and gratitude are extended to Dr. Kerrigan, who has been a dedicated and enthusiastic member of the JFS leadership team in her JFS AE role and was a tremendous help in making the new JFS structure the successful model it is today. She also performed the JFS AE duties for toxicology manuscript submissions with professionalism and integrity. Dr. Kerrigan will continue to serve as a JFS Editorial Board Member.

AEs were incorporated into the JFS process in 2017 and have played an integral role in the evolution of JFS. It is their dedication and effort that make JFS one of the leading forensic science journals in the world. We are excited to have Dr. Marta Concheiro-Guisan join the JFS leadership team and to her future contributions.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Concheiro-Guisan on her new appointment, as well as thanking Dr. Kerrigan for her vital contributions during her tenure as JFS AE.

Thank you for your continued support of JFS and its initiatives. For questions, please contact JFS Managing Editor Brenda Peat at
