What's New in SHOCK, November 2019?

The November 2019 issue of Shock is once again jam-packed with excellent research that encompasses all aspects of the shock research arena. As usual there are both clinically based and basic science-based manuscripts featured this month, and these manuscripts were submitted by investigators from across the world. The exciting findings showcased in this issue cover everything from sepsis, septic shock, and immune responses to bacteria, to work elucidating mechanisms of inflammation in burns, ischemia reperfusion, hemorrhagic shock, and acute pancreatitis. There will definitely be something to capture your interest this month!   Read more...




We need your help to design our new logo! Have you secretly always wanted to be a graphic designer? Was science and medicine your back-up for not getting into art school? If so, then we need you and your graphic design skills! 

The Shock logo and color scheme has not changed since our inception in 1977, and although we love the original logo, we think it is time for an update. We are looking for your input as Shock Members to try and design something that encapsulates what Shock means to you, what Shock represents to the community at large, and what Shock means for the future of research in trauma, sepsis, burns an infection. 

And the best part? You could win a free registration for Shock 2020 in Toronto!!! If you are a student/trainee member we’ll also throw in a free membership for a year. Win-win! The executive council will assess all the ideas submitted by the deadline and determine if a new logo idea is worthy of replacing our existing logo

We are ready and waiting for your fabulous ideas. Your design could represent our society for years to come, so get your pencils out and your thinking caps on. You don’t have to send us a professional design. A sketch or outline of what you have in mind is just fine. We are going to take the winning sketch or idea and work with a professional graphic designer to finalize the logo and put it into a format that we can use online and for marketing/promotional materials. All logo proposals must be original and free of copyright infringements.  

Submit your ideas to: Serena Weisman sweisman@faseb.org  

Deadline: December 31st, 2019
