The International Journal of Medical Biology (IJMB) is an open-access and fully peer-reviewed journal with the main focus on the practical application of human biology in medicine, health care, and laboratory diagnostics. The goal of the journal is to improve the understanding of mechanism of human disease from the position of a broad range of biomedical disciplines, and to review efficient and perspective methods of diagnosis, management, and prevention of the pathology. The journal is the natural publishing option for authors writing on a broad range of interests in fundamental and applied biomedical research, and a hub integrating the relevant research community. The journal is essential reading for all biologists and clinicians engaged in biomedical, clinical, and life science research.
