JEM Immunology Collection 2018
For over 120 years, Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM) has been a venue for seminal studies that have helped to establish our understanding of the basic principles of the immune system and move the field of research to new frontiers, aiding in the development of new therapies for multiple diseases. This JEM special collection explores recent and exciting advances in immunology and reflects diverse new lines of research, celebrating intersections with other fields such as cancer and metabolism. The studies presented here range from basic research into fundamental cellular and molecular processes in the immune system to innovative preclinical studies with therapeutic implications.
We hope you enjoy this collection, and we invite you to learn more about publishing in JEM.
