The Journal of Molecular Medicine is a monthly, peer-reviewed, scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media. It covers all aspects of human biology and pathophysiology. The emphasis is on the progress and precision now possible in the understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The employment of molecular biology and gene technology has enhanced the understanding of human diseases and has created a new branch of research known as "molecular medicine".
The journal is the continuation of the Klinische Wochenschrift (Journal for Clinical Medicine) established in 1864 and published by Springer for the Society of German Natural Scientists and Physicians. From 1992 to 1994, the journal's title was The Clinical Investigator.
