As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Aims and scope
Translational Medicine Communications is an interdisciplinary forum for all scientifically valid research from across translational medicine. We publish research that focuses on the biology of disease, as well as preclinical and basic research that is closely associated with medicine. Translational Medicine Communications will also consider reviews, methodology articles, protocols and commentaries.
Our aim is to improve transparency and reproducibility within translational medicine, which is why we consider research papers regardless of outcome or significance of findings, as well as protocols for future research. We aim to serve the translational science community by publishing all scientifically valid and technically sound articles and we are dedicated to facilitating the communication between basic and clinical science.
