About The Cover

Cover image expansion

ONLINE COVER Facts Collector. The current explosion in scientific knowledge makes it mandatory to have a system for organizing and curating information. Luckily, Science Translational Medicine has an "app" for that: SciTM Collections. On this week's cover, the journal's Collections icons are shown as if they were apps on a smart phone, linking users to the information they seek. Editor-selected highlights from the journal are grouped by subject to form more than 50 collections on topics such as vaccines, partnerships, and bioengineering. And unlike the nostalgia compiled by most collectors, SciTM Collections contain fresh content that is updated frequently by journal editors. [CREDIT: C. BICKEL/SCIENCE TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE]
