About Disease Models & Mechanisms

Disease Models & Mechanisms (DMM) is an Open Access biomedical research journal that advances novel insight into the mechanism, diagnosis and therapy of human disease. The journal was created in response to the increasing number of researchers who were attempting to model human diseases in a range of experimentally tractable organisms.

DMM is committed to publishing rigorously peer-reviewed research in disease biology that has significant translational impact at the interface of basic and clinical science.

DMM is interdisciplinary in scope, and covers a diverse range of diseases and model systems. It also publishes cutting-edge techniques and resources that advance the disease biology field. Its content is freely available to all communities of basic and clinical researchers, health professionals, patients and their advocates and families.

The journal is led by an international team of expert research-active Editors, including Editor-in-Chief Liz Patton and Deputy Editor-in-Chief Elaine Mardis, and supported by an outstanding Editorial Advisory Board.

Since its launch, DMM has grown in impact to become a highly regarded platform for studies that connect basic and applied science, a discipline known as translational medicine, but perhaps best described as ‘from bench to bedside’.

Please refer to the journal website.

DMM hosts occasional Journal Meetings, with a focus on networking and opportunities for attendees to more widely share their latest research.

DMM is a fully Gold OA journal (articles are published under the CC-BY license). Fee-free publication in DMM is available through many of our Read & Publish agreements.

Exploring the link between alcohol relapse and pain

It has been suggested that there is a link between pain and relapse into alcohol use disorder, two important areas of concern in the medical field. The mechanisms underlying this connection are not well understood, but the dynorphinergic system likely plays a key role. A DMM Travelling Fellowship recently supported a collaborative effort to investigate this in more detail.
