Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
AlphaMed Press, publisher of STEM CELLS, the oldest peer-reviewed journal solely dedicated to the field, announces the launch of its newest internationally peer-reviewed journal, STEM CELLS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE. STEM CELLS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE answers an acknowledged need within the research and clinical communities for comprehensive coverage of stem cell science, stem cell-based regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, stem cell-based predictive toxicology, and cancer stem cell investigation. The inaugural issue’s articles are now available at http://stemcellstm.alphamedpress.org/.
“STEM CELLS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE will further the growth and development of this fast-moving field,” said Anthony Atala, MD, Editor. “With its sister journal STEM CELLS, it will play an important role in the effective translation of science endeavor to clinical applications that can benefit patients.”
Published monthly, this new publication bridges stem cell research with clinical trials and applications, publishing high-impact, peer-reviewed articles, case studies, commentaries, and positive as well as negative clinical trials.
The scope of content in STEM CELLS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE will encompass Embryonic Stem Cells/Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cells; Fetal and Neonatal Stem Cells; Tissue-Specific Progenitor and Stem Cells; Cell-Based Drug Development, Screening and Toxicology; Enabling Technologies for Cell-Based Clinical Translation; Cancer Stem Cells; Standards, Policies and Regulations for Cell-Based Therapies; Protocols and Manufacturing for Cell-Based Therapies; and Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.
The potential of stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine is both provocative and unique. The inaugural issue of STEM CELLS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE presents compelling cell implantation technologies with novel tissue/organ repair and regeneration protocols, including a novel research platform with proof of concept studies in degenerative disease models. Under the editorial leadership of esteemed scientist-clinician Dr. Atala, STEM CELLS TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE aims to speed expertly executed translations of emerging lab discoveries into clinical trials and ultimately bedside application.
