Editorial: In recent decades, increasing advancement in biological sciences brings the need for reliable updated re-sources. Scientific research journals facilitate accessibility to comprehensive resources and lay a ground for dis-seminating the latest findings of research projects to achieve constructive experiences and satisfy the scientific community. Accordingly, Avicenna Research Institute has published Avicenna Journal of Medical Biotechnology (AJMB) since four years ago as a mission to promote infrastructure in biotech research.
Now, we are very delighted to being indexed in PubMed after four years of working in a skilled group of staff and enjoying the cooperation of a competent editorial board, executive manager and specifically the editorial assistance of Dr. Nima Rezaei. It is my great pleasure to appreciate the invaluable efforts of Dr. Ali Motevalizadeh Ardakani, the former editor in chief of AJMB, in promoting the quality of the journal and an-nounce that Professor Shahin Akhondzadeh, the Iranian prominent scientist and neuropsychopharmacologist, has been appointed to the position for the next three years. I am hopeful that taking advantage of his inval-uable experiences in other journals would be a precious asset to AJMB’s promotion in line with modern ad-vances in biological and medical sciences.
Hereby, I like to express my gratitude for the precious efforts of the previous editorial board members, Dr. Montazeri, Dr. Dinarvand, Dr. Bahram, Dr. Rafi, Dr. Vasei, and Dr. Zakeri and warmly send my greetings to the new board members. Finally, I would like to ask all experts, scientists, and intellectuals to join hands to support AJMB and improve its quality by their productive and brilliant ideas.
