Journal of Genes and Cells was established by the efforts of Pakistani young researchers with collaboration of some international young researchers from neighbouring countries as first journal to focus gene and cell therapeutic research in Pakistan. It was also aimed to discuss the molecular and cellular biology of social biological problems including epidemics and endemics. To publish this journal, a forum of young researchers under the supervision of leading Pakistani biologists in the field of genetics and biotechnology, was established and named as Pakistan Society for Gene and Cell Therapy (PSGCT). During the first year of successful publication of journal of genes and cells, a number of valuable articles focusing the stem cell research, clinical genetics, translation of biological research to clinics, current advances in cell therapy, potential of gene and cell drugs to target threating diseases such as cancer has remain the focus of this journal. In the coming years, the journal is focused to publish special issues discussing the molecular and cellular aspect of social problems being faced in Pakistan such as dengue viral infection, breast cancer, haemophilia, skin diseases and traumatic injuries etc.
