Today, CSHL Press launched a new review journal, Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Medicine, that covers everything from the molecular and cellular bases of disease to translational medicine and new therapeutic strategies.

CSH Perspectives in Medicine works the same way as its sister journal, CSH Perspectives in Biology. The contributions are written by experts in each field and commissioned as Subject Collections by a board of eminent scientists and physicians. These Subject Collections gradually accumulate articles as new issues of the journal are published and, when complete, each Subject Collection represents a comprehensive survey of the field it covers.

The first issue, out today, features articles discussing the history of Parkinson’s disease, strategies to develop a vaccine for AIDS, and neuropathological alterations in Alzheimer disease.  For the complete table of contents, click here.  Subsequent issues of the journal will feature articles from Subject Collections on cancer biology, malaria, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, cardiovascular disease, and a variety of other conditions.
