IN THIS issue of the ARCHIVES, we inaugurate a new section known as On The Horizon. Its purpose is to showcase emerging concepts in medicine that are likely to alter the clinical practice of dermatology and, therefore, likely to quickly become relevant to most dermatologists. Although in part a successor to a former section, Bridging the Laboratory and the Clinic, edited so well by Dr Lowell Goldsmith, On The Horizon is intended to deal not only with important new developments in laboratory research but also with emerging trends in other areas pertinent to the practice of dermatology such as health services research, medical education, technological innovation, economics, and politics. The goal is to alert dermatologists to new developments that are likely to affect the way they will practice medicine. The format will typically be an editorial review that summarizes past and present, and then looks ahead to the future. Topics may range from cosmids to cosmeceuticals, the common denominator being relevance to the practice of dermatology in the new millennium. This broad scope acknowledges the complexity of modern medicine and the myriad forces that will shape the future of dermatology.
