Parasites & Vectors wishes to announce that our founding Editor-in-Chief, Professor Chris Arme, will be stepping down from his role at the end of 2015. Professor Arme has built Parasites & Vectors into the premier open access journal for the international parasitology community and at BioMed Central, we are extremely grateful to him for his tireless work.
We therefore seek a new Editor-in-Chief to direct the journal in its next phase of development and to build on Professor Arme’s achievements.
