Mega-Publisher Snaps Up Cell
13 April 1999 6:00 pm
Elsevier Science of the Netherlands has bought Cell Press, publisher of the journal Cell and its sister publications Immunity, Neuron, and Molecular Cell.

Benjamin Lewin, Cell's editor since 1974, will stay at the helm of the journal and its sister titles. "Ben Lewin is Cell," says George Yancopoulos, a reviewing editor for the journal. It "is dominated by [his] view of what is hot."
