First articles now available online on ScienceDirect

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of
Translational Proteomics , an online-only, open access journal devoted to
transferring fundamental discoveries in the field of proteomics to clinical
applications, accelerating understanding and treatment of human diseases.

Jean-Charles Sanchez, Associate Professor at the University of Geneva, Head of
the Biomedical Research Proteomics Group and Director of the Proteomics Core
Facility of the Faculty of Medicine, will serve as Editor-in-Chief. The
journal aims to cover all areas of research in human proteomics using
multi-disciplinary approaches to untangle complex disease processes, such as
oncology, neurology, immunology, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases
and any internal medical disorder. Special sections within the journal will
highlight research in areas like systems biology and integrative
bioinformatics, clinical proteomics and personalized medicine, comparative
proteomics and drug development, medical bioinformatics and biostatistics,
food and health.

"With the launch of Translational Proteomics , we want to help the scientific
and medical communities overcome the challenges they face on the long path
from basic research to patient care," said Professor Sanchez. "By focusing on
connecting basic proteomics research to ultimate clinical applications, the
journal will provide a space for publications detailing proteomics
experiments, from early discovery to validation and the bedside."

"We are excited about the launch of Translational Proteomics ", added Dolors
Alsina, Executive Publisher at Elsevier. "This journal provides a unique
platform for the publication of high-quality, multi-disciplinary studies,
combining research which, until now, would have been broken into two or more
specialized publications."
