BMC Series Focus Issues

January: Antimicrobial resistance

Microbial resistance has become a major threat to human health in the 21st century. In order to provide the public with a general understanding of the situation of drug-resistant pathogens, and to alert and prevent this threat, the BMC Series Journals dedicate their first focus issue in 2022 to research on antimicrobial resistance.

December: HIV

For World AIDS day, the BMC Series Journals dedicate this month's focus issue to research on HIV and AIDS highlighting recent advancements in understanding the biology of the disease, the continued breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment and also shed some light on what life with HIV is like.
