I’m starting a collection of the best puns I’ve seen in major science journals
*Disclaimer: I only aggressively follow the big journals that are related to my fields of study
(Nature, Science, Radiology, Hepatology, Cancer Res, JCI), so I’m probably missing a lot of great puns. (I may also add Lancet, NEJM, and JAMA at some point but I don’t feel like it right now) Feel free to send me suggestions for additional journals to follow.
- Taking personalized medicine to heart (Nature Medicine, on treatment for cardiovascular disease)
- Endothelial Cells: The Heart Attack of the Clones (Science Translational Medicine, on clonal expansion of endothelials and their role in heart attacks)
Flora-ishing guts assist cancer immunotherapies (Science Immunology, gut flora, especially A. mucinophilia, help make immunotherapies more effective and may predict treatment outcome)
- Subtitle: Drug pair enABLes killing of leukemia (Science Immunology, PPA2 inhibitors sensitize leukemia cancer cells to ABL tyr-k inhibitors)
