Feinstein Institute Press Publishes Inaugural Issue of Bioelectronic Medicine

An open access, international, peer-reviewed biomedical journal covering emerging concepts in the interdisciplinary field of bioelectronic medicine

The papers in this issue report on a Centricity Series symposium held in May 2014 at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, New York, where over 100 investigators gathered to share the latest advances in the field of bioelectronic medicine. The papers that make up this introductory issue cover use of bioelectronic devices in a broad spectrum of disorders, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurodegenerative disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, hemorrhage, and inflammatory diseases.

 Bioelectronic medicine is the convergence of molecular medicine, bioengineering, and neuroscience to develop cures. The journal will promote understanding of the interactions between these disciplines at the anatomical, functional, and molecular signaling levels, and the use of that knowledge in the design of specific tools for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
