The Journal of Biomechanical Engineering has been in continuous production since 1977. To honor papers published at least 30 years ago that have had a long-lasting impact on the field, we present a paper starting from the early years of the journal that has had lasting impact, as assessed by metrics, such as the total number of citations accumulated since publication. Looking at the papers from the journal's first five years, we are pleased to present the following pair of papers as this year's Legacy Papers:

“Vascular Endothelial Morphology as an Indicator of the Pattern of Blood Flow” by R. M. Nerem, M. J. Levesque, and J. F. Cornhill, ASME J Biomech Eng 103(3): 172–176, 1981.

“The Dynamic Response of Vascular Endothelial Cells to Fluid Shear Stress” by C. F. Dewey, Jr., S. R. Bussolari, M. A. Gimbrone, Jr., and...
