Publications

Publishing is an important part of the academic profession and key in advancing scientific knowledge of the field. For the most up to date list and abstracts of our publications, please visit Pubmed, the online database of research sponsored by the US National Library of Medicine, of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).


The NIH Public Access Policy requires that all NIH-sponsored research be made publically available no later than 12 months after the official date of publication. As the majority of our work is funded by NIH, this means that the full-text versions of many of our articles are available online through PubMed Central, or the publisher’s sites linked through PubMed. If you would like a reprint of one of our articles, and are having trouble accessing it online, please email us for assistance.
