In this issue of CHEST, we are excited to introduce a new series, Giants in Chest Medicine. As its name implies, Giants in Chest Medicine will highlight the achievements of individuals who have made groundbreaking contributions within the fields of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.
To illuminate their accomplishments, the series will feature a video or podcast interview of our honorees sharing details about their career choices, research, and accomplishments. Podcast Editor D. Kyle Hogarth, MD, FCCP, serves as series editor. Joining Dr Hogarth in moderating the series is Peter J. Barnes, DM, Master FCCP. We thank Dr Barnes for suggesting and fostering this new feature for CHEST. He lobbied for the sharing of experience by the leaders in our field with the next generation of physician investigators.
