Clinical and Translational Allergy is one of several journals in the portfolio of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
Clive Grattan, MA, MD, FRCP, is currently Consultant Dermatologist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and St John's Institute of Dermatology, London, UK. He was chair of the Dermatology section of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), the academic association behind this journal, from 2010-2012.
"Clinical and Translational Allergy is a pioneering initiative to make high quality peer-reviewed research and reviews in Allergy and related subjects available to clinicians, scientists and the public in an open-access format. Authors retain copyright of their material. The journal is now indexed in PubMed Central and new publications will therefore have wide exposure. Advances in allergy and immunology are being made in the clinic and in the laboratory at a rapid rate. CTA provides the platform for rapid dissemination of these findings to a wide audience to provide greatest impact and benefit to society. The challenge of launching a new journal is already past and now is the time to project CTA into the future as the premier online resource for allergy research."
