Celebrating the scientific legacy of Herbert Tabor
We are pleased to mark Herbert Tabor’s 100th birthday by publishing a collection of articles that showcase his impact on science and scientific publishing. The collection is JBC-centric, for good reason. Herb Tabor has been a JBC author over a span of 72 years. More impactful for JBC is the leadership Herb Tabor provided the journal over many decades. In this collection, we sought to illustrate his scientific impact by inviting contributions from colleagues who authored papers in JBC while Herb Tabor was Editor-in-Chief and who recognize that these early papers launched fields that remain vibrant and timely today. All who contributed have noted how important Herb Tabor's editorial guidance of JBC was to their scientific discipline. Strikingly, this collection has become a testament to the amazing evolution of biological chemistry and the role JBC and Herb Tabor played in launching the trajectories of many of the most exciting current areas of molecular bioscience! We hope that you enjoy this testament to the immense impact a gentle, modest, open-minded scientist with a taste for fundamental molecular mechanisms of biology and a nose for exceptional science could have.
