Health Sciences Mindanao
Volume 1 | 2021


With much pleasure, we would like to present the inaugural issue of the Health Sciences Mindanao Journal (HSM) – the official scientific peer-reviewed journal of Davao Medical School Foundation, Inc. (DMSFI). In pursuit of the DMSFI’s vision of “Healthy Communities Enjoying Quality Life”, this journal presents researches from basic to translational sciences that contribute towards understanding the factors that influence human health and disease.

We are certain that this will be the first of many others that will follow, giving an account to new knowledge and developments of its area of interest. This issue would not have been possible without the support of the Editorial Board members and staff. Our sincere thanks to all of you.

It is our hope that this compilation of articles would be a valuable resource for readers both from the medical and non-medical field and will encourage further research into this dynamic area of human health and disease.
