Biomedical Engineering Society's new journal to be published by Springer

December 14, 2009

Springer and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) have founded a new journal Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology (CVET). CVET is a forum for research on all aspects of cardiovascular physiology and medical treatment. The first issue of the new quarterly journal will appear in March 2010 and joins two other BMES publications at Springer, Annals of Biomedical Engineering and Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering.

Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology will present a wide spectrum of research, from basic to translational, covering cardiovascular physiology and medical treatment. It will offer academic and industrial investigators a platform for the dissemination of research that utilizes engineering principles and methods to advance knowledge and technological solutions related to the cardiovascular system. Coverage will range from subcellular to systems level topics, including implantable medical devices, tissue biomechanics, functional imaging, surgical devices and diagnostic instruments, among others. Ajit P. Yoganathan of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, USA, is editor-in-chief.

Robert Tranquillo, Chair of the BMES Publications Committee, said, "The Biomedical Engineering Society is excited to build on its strong partnership with Springer in offering this journal. We expect the journal to flourish, given the broad interest in this topic among academic researchers and medical device companies. The capable leadership and renowned stature of its inaugural editor-in-chief, Dr. Yoganathan, and the excellent services provided by Springer promise success."

Michael D. Weston, Senior Editor of Biomedical Engineering at Springer, said, "Springer is committed to helping the Biomedical Engineering Society accomplish its mission of publishing the best possible journals in biomedical engineering and bioengineering. We are excited to launch Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology with BMES at a time when advances in cardiovascular research and therapy are rapidly developing. Springer is proud to partner with BMES on this new journal, while at the same time strengthening our commitment to the two other Society journals we publish, Annals of Biomedical Engineering and Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering."
