It seems appropriate to review the American Journal of Transplantation (AJT) in 2004, the 50th anniversary of the first successful renal transplant procedure. The field of transplantation has matured, and advances in this discipline represent some of the greatest achievements of medicine in the 20th century. Coincident with the growth of the field, professional societies dedicated to the advancement of transplantation medicine have emerged. The AJT debuted in 2001, and it is now the official journal of both the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and the American Society of Transplantation, the premier transplantation societies in North America. Under the steady guidance of founding editor Philip F. Halloran, MD, PhD, AJT has grown rapidly in popularity. As a result of rigorous peer review, the high quality of the articles accepted for publication in this journal aptly reflects the best international information available.
