The Journal of Life Sciences

The Journal of Life Sciences is a full-color bimonthly American magazine and daily website published in San Francisco since May 2007. Owned by Burrill & Company and the California Healthcare Institute, TJOLS reports on how developments in the life sciences affect society, business, and policy.

TJOLS was launched to cover topics “where science and society meet”—an area that its founders felt was often overlooked by peer-reviewed science journals and mainstream business publications. Printed in a digest format, TJOLS was designed to stand apart from other science magazines on the rack with its edgy illustrated covers and its reliance on photography to help tell stories. The magazine has been well received by biotechnology executives, policy wonks, and healthcare professionals but is working to widen its base beyond its core audience. The number of visitors to, which features stories analyzing current life sciences news and trends, has been rising steadily from a small base.

From March 2007 to November 2007, TJOLS was published in partnership with Nielsen Business Media. Since that agreement ended in November 2007, the property has been owned jointly by Burrill & Company, a San Francisco-based life sciences merchant bank and the California Healthcare Institute, a public policy research and advocacy organization representing California’s biotech community based in La Jolla, California.

Famous quotes containing the words sciences, journal and/or life:

    I am not able to instruct you. I can only tell that I have chosen wrong. I have passed my time in study without experience; in the attainment of sciences which can, for the most part, be but remotely useful to mankind. I have purchased knowledge at the expense of all the common comforts of life: I have missed the endearing elegance of female friendship, and the happy commerce of domestic tenderness.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    To have some account of my thoughts, manners, acquaintance and actions, when the hour arrives in which time is more nimble than memory, is the reason which induces me to keep a journal: a journal in which I must confess my every thought, must open my whole heart!
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    The spring is here, young and beautiful as ever, and absolutely shocking in its display of reckless maternity; but the Judas tree will bloom for you on the Bosphorus if you get there in time. No one ever loved the dog-wood and Judas tree as I have done, and it is my one crown of life to be sure that I am going to take them with me to heaven to enjoy real happiness with the Virgin and them.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
