Aims and scope
Molecular Medicine is an open access journal publishing recent findings that elucidate disease pathogenesis at the molecular or physiological level, which may lead to the design of specific tools for disease diagnosis, treatment, or prevention. Manuscripts containing material relevant to the genetic, molecular, or cellular basis of key physiologic or disease processes are considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted to Molecular Medicine should describe the implications of the results for human disease and medicine, at a level approachable by our broad audience.
