The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine.
The discipline of Comparative Medicine aims to derive benefit from commonalities shared between distinct species. Through applying certain animal models of disease to humans in translational research, we can come to a more holistic understanding of the underlying biological mechanisms related to these diseases in each species, to the benefit of both. Original cover design by Peter Harris.
The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine is a PubMed-indexed, open access, quarterly journal edited by Yale medical, graduate, and professional students and peer reviewed by an extensive network of experts in the fields of biology and medicine. The journal aims to showcase outstanding research articles from all areas of biology and medicine, to publish significant case reviews, and to provide both perspectives on personal experiences in medicine and reviews of the current state of biology and medicine.To all interested authors: Starting in June 2015, YJBM began devoting entire issues to its focus topics. This means that all manuscripts in an issue will be related to the focus topic. As a result, we will not be considering off-topic manuscripts. Please keep an eye out for our future focus topics, and thank you for your understanding.
Upcoming focus topics:
December 2017: Genome Editing
