Medical Microbiology and Immunology is a peer-reviewed medical journal covering all aspects of the interrelationship between infectious agents and their hosts, with microbial and viral pathogenesis and the immunological host response to infections in particular as major topics. It is published by Springer and was established in 1886 by Robert Koch and Carl Flügge, who were the first editors-in-chief for more than 20 years. Originally named “Zeitschrift für Hygiene”, it was renamed multiple times in the light of scientific and medical advances and the emergence of new research disciplines, before adopting its current name Medical Microbiology and Immunology in 1971.[1] The current editors-in-chief are V.A.J. Kempf (Bacteriology), M.J. Reddehase (Virology) and C. Bogdan (Immunology).
