2019: The Year in Experimental Medicine
At the beginning of 2020, the start of a new decade, the Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM) is proud to present our annual Best of JEM series to highlight some of the articles that were of great interest to our readers. The top 10 papers are selected by the editorial team based, in part, on the number of requests for PDF and full-text HTML versions of an article in the first three months after publication. These studies highlight the breadth of JEM’s scope and our longstanding interest in original findings in disease pathogenesis.
We would like to thank our authors for contributing to JEM. It is our privilege to publish ground-breaking studies broadening human knowledge in immunology, host-pathogen interaction, cancer biology, cardiovascular biology, neuroscience and other areas relevant to disease pathogenesis. In 2019, we celebrated the recipients of the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award with a collection of JEM studies from Max D. Cooper (Emory University) and Jacques Miller (Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research) that revolutionized our understanding of the adaptive immune system.
We are also grateful to our reviewers for contributing their time and expertise to ensure the publication of quality science. Last but not least, we would like to thank our readers for their interest and continued support for JEM. We hope you will enjoy this collection and invite you to explore all of our other special collections. We also encourage your comments on Twitter at @JExpMed.
