    Vol. 46 No. 2 (2022)

    Welcome to the Journal of Biocommunication's Issue 46-2 (December 2022). We have assembled some diverse content for this issue, including four more historical presentations from Dr. Richard Byrne. The late Dr. Byrne was the keynote Speaker at BIO '76, and he also presented at Vision '82 (BPA's Annual Meeting) and at a number of BPA regional meetings. We hope that you enjoy his wit and his commentary. We've added MP3s to the Table of Contents that provides Dr. Byrne's personal audio.

    We include two image-rich Showcases for this issue. Our first JBC Showcase features the award-winning medical illustration of John Daugherty. John was the recipient of the Association of Medical Illustrators' 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award. His award was presented at the Awards Ceremony during the AMI's 2022 annual meeting held in Des Moines, Iowa. In this Showcase, we feature 32 of John's award-winning illustrations.

    Our second JBC Showcase features the award-winning natural science photography of Charles "Chip" Hedgcock, a medical/scientific photographer from Arizona. Chip has combined his love of the outdoors with more than 30 years of natural science photography. Chip was honored as the 2016 BioCommunications Association's Louis Schmidt Laureate.

    Our JBC Gallery features the Professional Category award winners from the Association of Medical Illustrators' 2022 Salon. If you've not yet seen these award-winning images and media, you're in for a visual treat.

  • Journal of Biocommunication Special Issue on Legacies of Medicine in the Holocaust and the Pernkopf Atlas
    Vol. 45 No. 1 (2021)

    This Special Issue of the Journal of Biocommunication (JBC), the professional journal of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the BioCommunications Association, is published in acknowledgement of this dark time in our professional history and in recognition of controversies that emanate from the creation of Eduard Pernkopf's Atlas of Topographical and Applied Human Anatomy. The collection of resources in this Special Issue is intended to contribute to the current and future examination of medical legacies, to advance scholarship and Holocaust education, in many contexts, including biomedical visualization. This JBC Special Issue 2021 is dedicated to the memory of all victims of the Holocaust, and especially to those victims portrayed in the atlas.
