Cytotherapy Editorial Board


Cytotherapy, the official journal of the  ISCT, publishes novel and innovative results from high quality scientific and clinical studies in the fields of cell and gene therapy. Studies evaluating the potency of experimental cell and gene therapies in clinically relevant animal models of disease and describing important advances in cell/gene-based product manufacturing and validation are welcomed. Results of clinical studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of cell and gene therapies in early and late phase trails are also of interest. In addition to short reports and full-length articles, the journal also accepts editorials addressing emerging trends and potential controversies in the field, and review articles summarizing bodies of work that have made lasting impacts in the field.

The journal's scope includes research in the following:

  • Stem cell processing and transplantation
  • Cell-based therapies of malignant and non-malignant blood diseases
  • Cancer
  • Stem cell plasticity
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Immunotherapy
  • Congenital disorders
  • Novel molecular therapies
  • Gene therapy
  • Microvesicle biology and therapeutic application

Readership and Target Group
