Journal of Clinical Immunology adds society affiliation

New editors-in-chief and editorial board also appointed

Springer’s Journal of Clinical Immunology announces an affiliation with the Clinical Immunology Society (CIS) starting in 2011. The CIS was formerly affiliated with the journal Clinical Immunology.
The Journal of Clinical Immunology is an international journal that helps researchers and academic clinicians keep current on investigative basic immunology and diseases related to the immune system. The journal publishes articles on basic, translational and clinical studies in all aspects of immunology, including animal models of human diseases. The editor-in-chief is Thomas Fleisher, MD (Bethesda, MD, USA) and the deputy editor-in-chief is Kathleen Sullivan, MD, Ph.D. (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA).
Steven M. Holland, MD, President of the CIS, said, “Uniting the CIS to the Journal of Clinical Immunology creates an engine for translational immunology with editor-in-chief Tom Fleisher as its engineer. We are very excited to be bringing the best medicine and immunology of the present and future to the members of CIS.”
Andrea Macaluso, Editorial Director Biomedicine at Springer, said, "We are incredibly grateful to Dr. Sudhir Gupta, founding editor of the Journal of Clinical Immunology, for over 30 years of loyalty and dedication. Moving forward with a new partner is an exciting time for the journal. We are honored to have Tom Fleisher and Kate Sullivan pave the way for the future. They have built a solid and reputable editorial board and we are confident of the journal's continued success under the direction of a phenomenal new team."
The Clinical Immunology Society (CIS), established in 1986, is devoted to fostering developments in the science and practice of clinical immunology. Its primary objectives are to facilitate the interchange of ideas and information among physicians and other investigators and to promote research on the causes and mechanisms of diseases relating to the immune system. The society also encourages investigators and clinicians to share in their knowledge of immunologically active drugs and other interventions and fosters excellence in research and medical practice.
