The BMC Medicine Editorial team recently had the pleasure of attending the annual congress for the American Academy of Neurology, held in Seattle, USA from April 27- May 1st, 2009. One of the largest conferences in neurology, AAN hosts more than 10 000 delegates from around the world with an intellectually stimulating program of more than 75 scientific sessions and over 1500 posters covering current research in clinical and translational neurology.
We were able to meet up with members of the Editorial Board for both BMC Medicine and BMC Neurology to discuss the progress of both journals, as well as future developments. We had the pleasure of meeting both established and new BMC Medicine Editorial Board members, including Paul Aisen, a recent addition to the board and author of our inaugural minireview.
If you are interested in clinical and translation medical research, why not sign up for article alerts for BMC Medicine? In addition, BMC Medicine welcomes submissions of original research that are suited to our scope. To be appropriate for BMC Medicine, articles need to be of outstanding quality, broad interest and special importance.
Our next conference attendance will be at the National Cancer Research Institute conference (NCRI) October 4-7, 2009 in Birmingham UK. We hope to be able to see you there!
