Topic: Translational Physiology

The Journal of Applied Physiology is soliciting the submission of original manuscripts in the field of Translational Physiology, an area of research that bridges the gap between basic physiology and patient care. Papers in this field may transfer clinical insights into hypotheses that can be tested and validated in the basic research laboratory, or they may transfer knowledge gained from basic research to human physiology or even to improved methods of treating or preventing disease.

The responding authors should indicate in their cover letter that the submitted manuscript is in response to this special call for papers. The manuscript will undergo normal peer review. If published, the article will be highlighted as part of the Translational Physiology Series.

If you have any questions or already have a manuscript in this area submitted to the Journal of Applied Physiology and would like to have it included for this series, please contact the Editor, Dr. Gary C. Sieck (Phone, 507-255-4373; Fax, 507-255-7300).
