Founded in 2016, Pathogens and Immunity is an open access journal established by an endowment from the Fasenmyer Foundation with the purpose of serving the needs of biomedical researchers (rather than those of journal publishers) by streamlining the processes for submission, review and publication. Over 140  top researchers serve as the journal’s associate editors and the journal is free and open access and charges no fees to authors. 

Michael Lederman, professor emeritus of medicine, is editor-in-chief of the journal.
