Since 1970, Current Topics in Membranes has sought to provide outstanding content to the scientific community on relevant topics that relate to the broad field of membranes. The serial is targeted towards scientists and researchers in biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology, providing the necessary membrane research to assist them in discovering the current state of a particular field and in learning where that field is heading. Researchers are encouraged to fully explore their ideas that are often limited in normal scientific publication formats due to strict space constraints. The authors and editors associated with the Current Topics in Membranes series are recognized as world-renowned scientists in their respective fields, making CTM one of the premier serials on membranes
