Benjamin Lewin founded Cell in January 1974, under the aegis of MIT Press. He then bought the title and established an independent Cell Press in 1986. The company spun off new journals as follows: Neuron in March, 1988; Immunity in April, 1994; and Molecular Cell in December, 1997. Benjamin Lewin left in October 1999, after having sold Cell Press to Elsevier the previous April.
Since that time, Cell Press has launched five new titles: Developmental Cell in July 2001; Cancer Cell in February 2002; Cell Metabolism in January 2005; Cell Host & Microbe in March 2007; and Cell Stem Cell in July 2007.
Meanwhile, three additional Elsevier journals have joined the Cell Press group: Current Biology launched in January 1996, which became part of Cell Press in early 2001; Chemistry & Biology launched on April 15, 1994, began a regular publication schedule in September of that year, and joined Cell Press in January 2002; and Structure launched in 1993, which merged with the journal Folding & Design in early 1999. At that point, the name changed to Structure with Folding & Design but reverted to Structure at the beginning of 2001, when the journal joined Cell Press.
In October 1995, Cell.com was launched and included tables of contents, abstracts, and information for authors and subscribers. Full-text online versions at Cell.com, Neuron.org, and Immunity.com were launched in July 1997.
