and the advance of a new interdisciplinary research field with great potential and significance.
WHO WE ARE
BrainImmune: Trends in Neuroendocrine Immunology features new concepts and viewpoints at the interface of neuroscience, endocrinology and immunology. We are the only online resource that delivers up to date information into the broad interdisciplinary area of neuroendocrine-immunology.
Here, concise summaries and overviews describe how the brain and the immune system ‘talk to each other’ in order to maintain homeostasis.
BrainImmune is also the first site covering stress-immune interactions, the interface of stress and immunity and the impact of stress on health and disease,
with over 100 articles in this area, and more than 25 articles related to stress and cancer.
One of the paradoxes of medical sciences is building boundaries between disciplines and drawing dividing lines between research fields.
In particular, the immune system has been often regarded as autonomous.
Thus, neurosciences and immunology developed independently for many years, and the question of how the brain communicates with the immune system remained enigmatic until fairly recently.
Our resource draws together concepts and ideas scattered in hundreds of scientific journals and derived from thousands of articles that impinge in some way on integrative neuroendocrine immunology and immunophysiology.
Concepts discussed here represent recent advances in the field;
they are not available in medical textbooks, and, as a general rule, not taught at medical schools.
Thus, the BrainImmune resource might serve not only as a useful foundation of knowledge for researchers & medical professionals, but also as an important educational tool for medical and PhDs students or postdoctoral research scientists and trainees worldwide.
We bring the latest developments in neuroendocrine immunology and our resource draws together concepts and ideas scattered in hundreds of scientific journals.
We aim to narrow down the information and conceptual gap at the interface of neurosciences and immunology.
The more we share knowledge, the easier it is to break down barriers between scientific areas.
HELP OUR MISSION
to advance a new interdisciplinary research field that has great potential and significance.
Boost the development of the only online resource that delivers up to date information into the vast area of neuroendocrine-immunology and stress-immune interactions.
WHY SUPPORT US?
From our beginning, we haven’t put-up a paywall of subscriptions and/or submission fees. In the rapidly growing online publishing world, however, funds are limited, thus, we increasingly need our readers support.
The money goes to support hosting and development costs and then project initiatives (see previous contributions). Your contribution will be acknowledged on this page.
We appreciate your willingness to support our work and mission.
