Introducing the Hot topics series

The Journal of Translational Medicine Hot Topics series will publish a limited number of high interest review articles per year on cutting edge topics from across the breadth of the journal’s scope. Articles should be submitted by invitation of Editor-in-Chief, Francesco Marincola, only and should cover emerging concepts, points of view or foresights rather than focus on comprehensive discussions of well-established areas. We encourage the participation of investigators from different groups with complementary expertise in the propose theme. Articles will be published in the series free of charge.

If you would like to propose a review article for the Hot Topics series, please contact Dr. Marincola at with a suggested outline.
