Journal 2017

Dear Readers,
We express our deepest gratitude to the authors, reviewers, faculty mentors, our institution’s administration an academic departments, and, most importantly, our student staff. It has been an unbelievable learning opportunity and an absolute privilege to work with all of you in the production of this volume.

We joined the Journal in our first year as medical students, overcome with the enthusiasm of its potential. In that year we witnessed the remarkable effort put forth by Aaron and Devin to bring this Journal back to life. Last year, Katie, Edina, and Dino continued to lay the foundation for making the Journal an integral part of the Wake Forest community. In this past year, we have strived to add to the Journal's legacy, depth, and influence, both within and outside of the Wake Forest community.

Wake Forest Journal of Science and Medicine, volume 3, marks a year in which we received our highest number of submissions and endorsements from reviewers across the nation. We attribute much of this to two important transformations. First, the Journal added positions for graduate students who expanded and inured research in the basic sciences that is displayed in our publication. Second, the Journal developed a new and systematic algorithm to manage the receipt, review, and editing of manuscripts which streamlined our communication with authors and reviewers. With these implementations, we feel confident that the Journal will continue to grow and develop into an even larger publication of highly diverse and novel content.

The following pages are a testament to the remarkable abilities of our colleagues within and beyond this institution.
We hope this issue will impart to you intellectual curiosity, new knowledge, and, ultimately, inspiration to provide the
best quality of care for patients.

Lauren Edgar, Phillip Kim, and Vahakn Shant Keskinyan
