An Update from JMT Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Mark Mycyk

JMT has continued to publish on time even during the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are especially proud that all ASM abstracts were published online before the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) in March. 

We are also pleased to announce several COVID-19 relevant papers quickly published in JMT and linked on the ACMT COVID-19 resources page. We anticipate more papers over the next several months. 

We wish to congratulate Natalie Neumann from Denver and Michael Chary from Boston on their outstanding service as FIT Editors during 2019-20.  We are also pleased to welcome Jenny Ross from Virginia as our 2020-21 FIT Editorial Board Member.

We recognize the obligations our authors, reviewers, and other editors have to their families and home institutions, so we will remain flexible with deadlines.  If ever any questions about the journal, please reach out to me at
