If examination of journal performance is a surrogate for the vitality of a discipline, the continued ascension of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (CPT) bodes well for the evolution and practice of human therapeutics in this decade. CPT has excelled as the authoritative, cross-disciplinary journal in experimental and clinical medicine devoted to publishing advances in the nature, action, efficacy and evaluation of therapeutics in humans. Building on a foundation that established the core tenets, and a framework providing the structural integrity for the field, CPT was conceived by visionary precedent editors and editorial teams who were themselves leaders of this discipline. Today, CPT is regarded as the premier international forum for the intersection of diverse communities of practice enriching the discovery and application of therapeutics in this new era of molecular science and translational medicine.
