Special journal issue on pediatric genomic medicine

Clinical Therapeutics (CT) is seeking papers for a specialty topic update on value, implementation, and access to pediatric genomic medicine. This themed section will be co-edited by Tara Lavelle and Hadley Stevens Smith. Additional information about topics of interest and the journal can be found here.

If you are interested in contributing, please send Tara and Hadley an email by July 31 that includes the title, article type (original article, review, or commentary), and abstract (< 400 words) of your proposed manuscript. They will be in touch after abstracts are evaluated to communicate the deadline for the full manuscript. All invited papers will undergo rigorous peer review and will not be subject to submission fees or page charges.

Please share this Call for Papers with colleagues and students who are working on issues of value, implementation, and access to pediatric genomic medicine, as Tara and Hadley hope to recruit a diverse array of experts for this special edition.

Contact details for Tara and Hadley are as follows:

  • Tara Lavelle, PhD (tlavelle@tuftsmedicalcenter.org) | Assistant Professor, Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health, Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies, Tufts Medical Center
  • Hadley Stevens Smith, PhD, MPSA (hadley.smith@bcm.edu) | Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Health Policy, Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, Baylor College of Medicine | Incoming faculty, Department of Population Medicine, Harvard Medical School & Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute
