Aims & Scope

Cellular Reprogramming is the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated to cellular reprogramming mechanisms, technologies and applications. Cellular reprogramming is a diverse and growing discipline that studies cellular identity reversal or modification. The field aims to understand how cell fate is acquired, maintained and inherited in health, what happens when cell identity in hijacked in disease and to harness cell fate engineering for therapeutic applications. The journal covers but is not limited to the different ways cellular reprogramming can be achieved experimentally, including nuclear transfer, cell fusion or expression of defined factors.

Cellular Reprogramming is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Filipe Pereira, PhD, Professor, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University who is aided by a diverse and accomplished editorial board.

Cellular Reprogramming is a forum communicating basic cutting-edge discoveries in cellular reprogramming research, in addition to translational and clinical studies. The journal publishes high-quality original research papers, as well as review articles, perspectives and commentaries spanning cellular reprogramming research and its societal impact. It creates a critical information hub aiming to solidify and foster growth of the cellular reprogramming field.
