Life Sciences Letters, IEEE


The IEEE Life Sciences Letters (LSL) is dedicated to the timely publication of high quality manuscripts that apply methods of quantitative analysis to biological problems at the molecular, cellular, organ, human and/or population levels. The key scientific themes addressed by the journal include personalized medicine, pharmaceutical engineering, synthetic biology, and systems biology. The Letters publication will focus on short papers with a maximum length of four IEEE two-column pages, with quick decision, ideally within four weeks.

The topics covered by this journal include, but are not limited to:

  • Personalized medicine-Data mining methods for extracting meaning from biological data;
  • Customization of therapy to individual patients;
  • Big-data and Omics approaches to biomarkers and therapeutics for complex diseases;
  • Micro/nanofluidics technologies related to Omics;
  • Noninvasive physiological monitoring using optical technology;
  • Pharmaceutical engineering-Control principles that led to novel approaches to drug target identification;
  • Development and manufacturing of products, processes, and components in the pharmaceutical industry;
  • Application of engineering principles to clinical studies for purposes of safety and efficacy;
  • Engineering techniques for discovering, modifying, or designing therapeutic agents;
  • Synthetic biology-modeling, design and construction of synthetic biological networks;
  • Identification methods for reverse engineering of multicomponent biological networks;
  • Optimization and optimality in life science problems;
  • Minimal cell design;
  • Systems biology-analysis and simulation of gene regulatory networks;
  • Signal transduction cascades;
  • Synchronization phenomena at the cellular and subcellular level.
