The American Thoracic Society’s Family of Journals: Basic Science, Translational, and Clinical

To further the Society’s mission to improve health worldwide by advancing research, clinical care, and public health in respiratory disease, critical illness, and sleep disorders, the Society’s three peer-reviewed journals—the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology, and the Annals of the American Thoracic Society—publish groundbreaking research, clinical reviews, workshop reports, and statements and guidelines relevant to adult and pediatric pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine.

The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine:  publishes high-quality original papers, reviews, and clinical trials in respiratory, critical care, and sleep medicine to foster advances in translational research and clinical practice.

The American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology: publishes papers that report significant and original observations in the area of respiratory and lung cell biology. Its focus includes cellular, biochemical, molecular, developmental, genetic, and immunologic studies in health and in acute and chronic disorders related to the respiratory system and sleep.

Annals of the American Thoracic Society: publishes original clinical, epidemiological, and health services research related to respiratory, sleep, critical care medicine, and population health. The journal also aims to educate pulmonary, sleep, and critical care providers about clinical care, and publishes commentary on public health, environmental health, global health, health policy, and medical education/training relevant to ATS members.

Together, the journals publish the latest advances in basic science, translational and clinical research, clinical trials, state-of-the-art reviews, perspectives, clinical guidelines, and report on the education and development of adult and pediatric respiratory health professionals.


Registration Open for NIH Workshop on Single IRB Resource and Infrastructure Development

NIH will be holding a public workshop on successful strategies and lessons learned for modifying and enhancing institutional IRB infrastructure for single IRB review of multi-site studies.
The “Final NIH Policy on the Use of a Single Institutional Review Board for Multi-Site Research,” establishes the expectation that the domestic sites of all NIH-funded multisite studies involving non-exempt human subjects research will use a single Institutional Review Board.

NIH previously funded seven administrative supplements that provided one year of support to develop widely applicable approaches for modifying and enhancing institutional IRB infrastructure and related resources to allow for efficient and effective single IRB review of multi-site studies. This workshop will bring together those awardees to share the innovative strategies they have developed.

When: September 12, 2018

Where: Online and at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Rockville, 1750 Rockville Pike, MD.
