Nanomedicine journal to debut in March

Elsevier Announces First-ever Journal of Nanomedicine
Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine to launch in March 2005 (PharmaLive)

    Elsevier, the world-leading scientific and medical publisher, announces plans to launch the world's first peer-reviewed journal devoted to nanomedicine - the emerging science of using molecular machines to treat human disease. Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology, and Medicine, the official publication of the American Academy of Nanomedicine, will be published quarterly, with the first issue to appear in March 2005.

    "Nanomedicine has developed very rapidly in recent years, with promising applications in areas such as recognition of cancer cells, stem cell labeling, and monitoring of DNA damage and repair," says Dr. Chiming Wei of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the new journal's Editor-in-Chief. "We hope this journal will provide a new focal point for efforts to advance this revolutionary technology for maintaining and restoring human health."

    Nanomedicine will be the first professional journal devoted solely to the medical uses of nanotechnology, bringing together experts from every scientific field involved in this new science. The journal will select and publish the most important papers in basic and clinical nanomedicine, diagnostic advances and applications, pharmacologic nanomedicine, engineering and biotechnology for clinical applications, and more.
