Arthur P Arnold, Founding Editor

Arthur Arnold is a Distinguished Professor of Integrative Biology and Physiology, and Director of the Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology of the Brain Research Institute, at the University of California, Los Angeles. "Sex differences occur in many tissues and diseases. Biology of Sex Differences serves as a forum for discussion of the forces that make females and males different, and the downstream pathways that are affected by sex-specific forces. This information will be critical for discovery of factors, often more prevalent in one sex than the other, that alleviate disease."
