The Translational Signaling and System Biology section aims to uncover pivotal transduction signaling involved in pathophysiological processes toward a translational impact on the discovery of novel targets and therapeutics. 

The section welcomes research and review articles providing new mechanistic insights on a broad range of fields such as cancer, cardiovascular biology, neuroscience, metabolism, inflammation, immunology, microbiology, drug action also through new formulations and delivery methods, novel cellular and animal models, computational and systems biology, innovative laboratory concepts fostering translational research from the bench to the bedside.
