Basic Sciences of Medicine

Basic Sciences of Medicine is a peer reviewed international basic medical sciences journal, which is aimed to promote research and information in basic medical sciences. It can improve health, health care and health education, internationally by elevating the quality of medical care, disease prevention, and research.
