JLB Dedicated Meeting Issue

Be part of a Special JLB Dedicated Meeting Issue! 

The Journal of Leukocyte Biology (JLB) will publish a cluster of articles related to topics of the 2019 Lorne Infection & Immunity Conference meeting, both review papers ("overviews") and original investigations. Selected contributions will be invited soon after the completion of the conference, and all submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the high standards of the JLB. 

The Journal of Leukocyte Biology (JLB) publishes original experimental and clinical research that provides new insights into the function of leukocytes and/or stromal cells at the molecular, structural, cellular and systemic level. The Journal scope includes all leukocytes (granulocytes, monocytes/macrophages, dendritic cells, T, B and innate lymphoid or NK/NKT cells) and/or leukocyte products together with associated stromal (endothelial, epithelial) cells studied in vitro and in the context of innate and adaptive immunity, development, homeostasis, host-pathogen interactions, immunotherapy and immunopathogenesis (in both vertebrate models and/or human studies). Pathologies of interest include immunodeficiency, autoimmunity, allergy, cancer, trauma, infections, inflammatory and iatrogenic diseases. JLB also publishes basic, translational and clinical reviews as well as commentaries on current journal content.

Participants may submit their work for the dedicated issue according to the following schedule:
