The MIMER Medical Journal (MMJ) is a multidisciplinary, open-access journal published biannually. MMJ is the peer-reviewed official journal of MIMER Medical College, Pune. We aim to inform our readers of novel concepts, opinions, developments and key issues in the medical field – clinical and research alike, to spark interest, conversation and innovation amongst medical practitioners of all disciplines. We aim at disseminating novel biomedical research, clinical/surgical methodologies, treatment reports and observational case reports freely to promote research philosophy and exploration in the medical fraternity and beyond. We envision this objective to be fulfilled by submission of original research findings, reviews, case reports and scientific reports of novel diagnostic/therapeutic technologies. The scope of MMJ is a wide one, in that the editorial board welcomes innovative, novel,thought-provoking and inspiring content which will keep the reading medical community in a state of constant learning and contemporary awareness.
