Personal Statement by Ralph and Melissa Daniel:
We have greatly benefited from the medical field, especially in dermatology and nail disorders. When we began writing about
nails and nail research in the 1970's, there were only a handful of us that concentrated on nail disorders. We were able to
partner early on with Dick Scher who kindly helped foster our burgeoning interest. We also appreciated the work of Robert
Baran and Nardo Zaias. Now we hope, in some modest fashion, to assist the next generation of onychologists.
