Cellular and Molecular Medicine

Edited by: Professor Yves St-Pierre and Professor Jean-Léon Thomas

It is our pleasure to introduce the Cellular and Molecular Medicine Collection, a new venue for research in the field of cellular and molecular science related to medical questions. Articles published in SpringerPlus: Cellular and Molecular Medicine are linked to the journals Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences and Journal of Molecular Medicine. Articles may also be directly submitted to Springer Plus. SpringerPlus: Cellular and Molecular Medicine Collection provides a new Open Access forum for publication of scientifically valuable original papers and review articles.

Subject matters for the Collection include all molecular and cellular aspects of biomedical research, such as:

  • biochemistry
  • molecular biology
  • cell biology
  • pharmacology
  • immunology
  • neuroscience
  • biomarkers
  • human biology
  • pathophysiology
  • diagnosis and treatment

Article categories are Original Research articles, Reviews, and Methods papers.

All manuscripts are subject to rigorous peer review for their suitability for publication in SpringerPlus.

Meet the Editors

Dr. Yves St-Pierre obtained his B.Sc in Biology from the Université of Québec at Montréal in 1985, and his M.Sc. in Virology from the Institut Armand-Frappier in 1987. He obtained his Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Toronto, in 1991. He has completed his postdoctoral training in the Department of Pathology at Harvard University. He is currently Professor at INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier.

Dr. St-Pierre is interested in the role of the adhesion molecules and extracellular proteases in cancer and inflammatory disorders.

Further to his position with the Cellular and Molecular Medicine Collection, Yves St-Pierre is an Editorial Board member of the journal Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences (CMLS).

 Jean-Léon Thomas performed a PhD. in developmental biology with Pr. Nicole Le Douarin at Collège de France (Paris), and postgraduate studies on glial cell development with Bernard ZALC at INSERM, Salpêtrière Hospital (Paris). He was nominated Associate Professor at the University of Marne la Vallée in 1997 and Research Director at INSERM in 2005.

Until 2010, he was heading a research group on ‘Oligodendrocyte development and Neurovascular interactions’ at the Research Center of the Brain and Spinal Cord Institute, Salpêtrière Hospital (Paris). JL THOMAS has an Associate Professor position at the Neurology Department of the Yale School of Medicine and is member of the Yale Stem Cell Center.

Further to his position with the Cellular and Molecular Medicine Collection, Jean-Léon Thomas is the Reviews Editor for the journal Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences (CMLS).
