CDD brand (CDD-erc)

The CDD association has a strong involvement in the scientific community and has launched three distinct journals, all published on the association's behalf by Springer Nature.

Cell Death & Differentiation, launched in 1994, currently with an impact factor of 8.218. Cell Death & Differentiation is published monthly and devotes itself to scientific excellence in the field of cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry of cell death and disease. The journal is committed to the rapid publication of high-quality original papers relating to these subjects, together with topical, usually solicited, reviews, meeting reports, editorial correspondence and occasional commentaries on controversial and scientifically informative issues. It continues to attract the best material in the field.

Cell Death & Disease, launched in 2010, currently with an impact factor of 5.378. Cell Death & Disease is a peer-reviewed online-only, open access journal in the field of translational cell death. It seeks to promote diverse and integrated areas of experimental and internal medicine with its specialties, including cancer, immunity and neuroscience. Cell Death & Disease seeks to encompass the breadth of translational implications of cell death, and topics of particular concentration will include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Experimental medicine
  • Cancer
  • Immunity
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience
  • Cancer metabolism

Cell Death Discovery, launched in 2015, currently without an impact factor.

In addition CDD-erc organizes scientific conferences, including the Cell Death & Disease Symposium.
