Neurologist, professor of Neurology at the Aarhus University.

Ex-Chief Editor of Acta Neurologica Scandinavica

Ex-president of International League against Epilepsy

On the 4th of May 2022 we lost our dear colleague and previous Chief Editor of Acta Neurologica Scandinavica. Mogens Dam was a man who inspired many and especially me to pursue the field of epilepsy and to strive to help every patient achieve the best possible outcome. He was a true and astute scientist and teacher as well as chief editor. Mogens’ specialty was epilepsy, and he achieved the highest honor of being the President of the International League Against Epilepsy. Today the epilepsy community has lost a very knowledgeable and caring friend.

It was not easy to take over from Mogens as editor. He was very strict but fair. He, however, put his trust in me to continue in the tradition of Acta being an international journal with a Scandinavian twist. I hope that I was able to make Mogens proud of the continued success of the journal in his spirit. I for one will always cherish his memory.
