Along the long scientific research road, one’s ability to publish his works in high-impact journals, especially in journals indexed in SCI, has been an important criterion to measure his academic attainments. Let’s assume those who stably publish 2 SCI papers per year as “Experts”, 5 as “Talents”, 10 as “Geniuses”, but what about 100? “Supermen”, the editorial office said jokingly. Well, they could not be seen many in modern days, but we do can see them exist and work actively among different research fields, achieving seemly impossible fruitful attainments…They are legends in different fields along the scientific research way.
Today, we would like to introduce a living legend around us in field of clinical biochemistry—Prof. Giuseppe Lippi (Figure 1), whom the editorial office have work with closely and witnessed his talent, high-efficiency, and great enthusiasm to research during the past one year. Prof. Lippi is a full professor of clinical biochemistry at the University of Verona, and the director of the clinical chemistry and hematology laboratory of the University Hospital of Verona. Besides being our Executive Editor-in-Chief, he also actively take on important roles among various prestigious journals and societies, including as Associate Editor of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (CCLM) and Seminars in Thrombosis and Hemostasis (STH), Chair of the Scientific Division of Italian Society of Clinical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SIBioC), etc.
