Molecular Therapy is the official journal of
the American Society of Gene Therapy, a large and diverse group of researchers
focusing on aspects of gene targeting to treat a variety of human diseases,
both genetic and acquired. The editorial board represents familiar names and
recognized leaders in this area of scientific endeavor.
For the targeted audience, the editors have hit a bull's-eye with respect
to the quality and types of manuscripts accepted and published to date. In
the last two years they have published 206 articles in 24 issues. The quality
of the articles, their clean graphic presentation, and a nonintrusive advertising
format distinguish Molecular Therapy as an essential
title at a reasonable price in an emerging field.
