Lymphatic Research and Biology Journal
Lymphatic Research and Biology delivers the latest developments and advances in lymphatic biology and pathology from the world’s leading biomedical investigators. The journal provides original, peer-reviewed research from a broad range of investigative disciplines, including genetics, biochemistry and biophysics, cellular and molecular biology, physiology and pharmacology, anatomy, developmental biology, and pathology.
The journal is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Stanley G. Rockson, MD, Falk Cardiovascular Research Center, Stanford University School of Medicine; Associate Editor Francine Blei, MD, Vascular Birthmark Institute; and other leading investigators. Dr. Rockson is the Allan and Tina Neill Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine, a position funded through LE&RN.
