Aims & Scope
Encompassing the broad spectrum of epigenetics research from basic research to innovations in therapeutic treatments, Clinical Epigenetics is a top tier, open access journal devoted to the study of epigenetic principles and mechanisms as applied to human development, disease, diagnosis and treatment. The journal particularly welcomes submissions involving clinical trials, translational research, new and innovative methodologies and model organisms providing mechanistic insights. The journal is divided into the following sections:
- Aging and development epigenetics
- Allergy, immunology, and pathogen epigenetics
- Cancer epigenetics and diagnostics
- Cardiovascular epigenetics
- Endocrinology and metabolic epigenetics
- Environmental epigenetics
- Epigenetic biomarkers
- Epigenetic technologies
- Epigenetic therapies and clinical trials
- Innovative therapies
- Lifestyle epigenetics
- Neurology and psychiatry epigenetics
- Regenerative medicine
- Reproductive and transgenerational epigenetics
