In September 2019, I invited Dr. Stefano Barco, Mainz/Zurich, who has recently been appointed a Junior Editorial Board Member, to design, organize and edit a special issue of Hämostaseologie—Progress in Haemostasis. Specifically, I asked Stefano to motivate a number of particularly successful members of the young scientific community from at home and abroad to submit contributions, which should reflect their current research activities in hemostasis and thrombosis. As an envisaged side effect of this initiative, I had in mind to bring international scientists among the authors closer to the Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis Research (GTH) and to make them more familiar with GTH activities and its Journal. Vice versa, it was also intended to increase the awareness of young physician-scientists and young investigators conducting basic research with regard to their productivity and accomplishments among the GTH members.
