Call for Papers: Special Issue on Emerging Leaders in Pharmacology & Translational Science

ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science is planning to publish a Special Issue titled “Emerging Leaders in Pharmacology & Translational Science” in February 2020, headed up by Dr. Karen Gregory, ARC Future Fellow and Lab Head, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Professor Rebecca H. Ritchie, NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Lab Head, Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. Together they invite graduate students and early career researchers (ECRs) to submit a manuscript by November 1, 2019.

“By providing ECRs what may be their first opportunity to be a corresponding author, we anticipate providing greater exposure of the work they drive and an opportunity to further add to their CV for career development purposes,” Dr. Gregory says.

What to Submit—Deadline: November 1, 2019

“We’re looking for research led by graduate students and early career researchers up to 10-years post-Ph.D. to submit their manuscripts for possible inclusion this Special Issue,” Professor Ritchie says.

Areas of particular interest include:

  • Research that challenges existing paradigms for drug action revealing new insights into mechanisms of action from the structural/molecular level through to preclinical models
  • New approaches/molecules for well-established drug targets
  • Elucidation of novel drug targets or physiological roles

Articles, Letters, Reviews, Perspectives, and Viewpoints are all welcome. For details on requirements for each manuscript type, please consult the Author Guidelines. You can also find the entire ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science scope below.

ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science Scope

ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science publishes high-quality, innovative research across the broad spectrum of biological sciences —from basic and molecular sciences to translational preclinical studies. Its editors also consider clinical studies that address novel mechanisms of action and methodological papers that provide innovation and advance translation.

The journal’s editors give priority to studies that fully integrate basic pharmacological and/or biochemical findings into physiological processes that have translational potential in a broad range of biomedical disciplines. Therefore, studies that employ a complementary blend of in vitro and in vivo systems are of particular interest, but they will consider all innovative research with articulated translational relevance.

ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science does not publish research on biological extracts that have unknown concentration or unknown chemical composition.

If you’re not sure if your research is within scope, please email the journal’s editorial team at for feedback.
