Professor Gallagher commented, ‘As PNS Editor-in-Chief, I am committed to contributing to the development of high-quality scientific meetings through the Science Committee and to see the resulting review papers through to publication. I would also like to see an increase in the number of review papers published from meetings which we jointly deliver with other societies and professional bodies.’
