Italian Journal of Anatomy and Embryology

The Italian Journal of Anatomy and Embryology was founded in 1901 by Giulio Chiarugi, Anatomist at Florence University, and hence ever devoted to the progress and diffusion of science in the fields of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology.
The Journal will continue to be devoted to publish original, research or review papers dealing with the entire field of anatomy and embryology of vertebrates, from clinical anatomy to cell and developmental biology, with special regard to human and veterinary medicine and including medical education in those fields.
