Trends in Molecular Medicine
- Written by Editorial Team
Trends in Molecular Medicineincludes review articles on the genetic basis of disease, but 'molecular' does not only mean DNA. The diagnostic role of genetic processes is clear, but major benefits in health and disease are also provided by other molecules: enzymes, antibiotics, hormones, metals, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, synthetic organic and inorganic polymers.
Trends in Molecular Medicine is a leading biomedical review journal, providing reviews and comment on the latest breakthroughs in basic and translational research. This includes basic research aimed at understanding disease mechanisms, as well as translational research utilizing this information to develop new and improved molecular-targeted approaches for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Molecular intervention also raises ethical, legal and financial issues. The journal’s objective is to provide a platform for discussion, analysis and debate of these topics across a diverse, multidisciplinary audience of basic scientists and clinicians, who share the common goal of understanding the molecular basis of disease with a view to new clinical practice. Communication of the emerging concepts and ideas will facilitate progress in this exciting and rapidly evolving new field of molecular medicine.
