Abstract

A group of original papers is assembled for this thematic-papers issue on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The idea for a thematic-papers issue came from Associate Editor and Guest Editor, Jicheng Li. Jicheng's idea was to introduce concepts and studies of TCM to the editorial board of The Anatomical Record and the Journal's readership. Thus, nine papers are published that deal with biomarkers, animal models, or treatments of TCM syndromes. Uniquely, Jicheng's effort culminated in acupuncture treatment of the editorial board members by a licensed physician of TCM. We learned, first-hand by Dr. Weixue Wang, about this ancient and vibrant holistic philosophy and medical practice. Our pleasure is to share the topic and our experience with you.
