Public Health Genomics

From genome-based sciences to public health

Aims and Scope

Public Health Genomics is the leading international journal focusing on the timely translation of genome-based knowledge and technologies into public health, health policies, and healthcare as a whole. This peer-reviewed journal is a bimonthly forum featuring original papers, reviews, short communications, and policy statements. It is supplemented by topic-specific issues providing a comprehensive, holistic and ‘all-inclusive’ picture of the chosen subject. Multidisciplinary in scope, it combines theoretical and empirical work from a range of disciplines, notably public health, molecular and medical sciences, the humanities and social sciences. In so doing, it also takes into account rapid scientific advances from fields such as systems biology, microbiomics, epigenomics or information and communication technologies as well as the high potential of ‘big data’ for public health.
What was until very recently no more than a vision for a new era of public health, in which advances in the ‘-omic’ sciences would be integrated into strategies aiming at benefiting population health, has now become a response to the very pressing need for the development of effective personalized healthcare which is complementary to health protection and health promotion. The aim of Public Health Genomics is to facilitate a broad dialogue between academia, the private sector and government bodies.
