Stem Cell Research & Therapy: now accepting submissions

A new BioMed Central journal, Stem Cell Research & Therapy, is now accepting submissions.

Stem Cell Research & Therapy aims to be the major forum for translational research into stem cell therapies. An international peer-reviewed journal, it will publish open access research articles of outstanding quality. The journal will have a special emphasis on translational, laboratory, and clinical research into stem cells. It will include animal trials, pre-clinical and clinical trials. We will consider adult, embryonic, and induced pluripotent stem cell research, especially with a focus on cell-based transplantation, drug discovery and testing, cell-mediated tissue response and biological effects stimulated by endogenous cells. We will have a unique focus on drug discovery and testing, stem cell manufacture, engineering, and biomaterials.

The journal is edited by Dr Rocky Tuan (National Institutes of Health, USA) and Prof Timothy O’Brien (National University of Ireland, Galway), and is supported by an international Editorial Board.

Stem Cell Research & Therapy joins BioMed Central’s growing portfolio of journals that uniquely focus on publishing translational research of exceptional interest, as well as authoritative reviews and commentaries. Other titles in this series include the well-established Arthritis Research & Therapy, and Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy, which is due to publish its first issue in July 2009.

For more information on Stem Cell Research & Therapy please visit the journal’s information page or contact the editorial office. To keep up to date with the latest developments and to receive a copy of the inaugural issue, please register your email address on the website.

Submit your next outstanding piece of research to Stem Cell Research & Therapy to benefit from the rapid peer review, high visibility, and immediate and free access to all research papers.
