Precision oncologyWe are pleased to announce a new cross-journal thematic series on ‘Precision Oncology’ across a number of BMC journals within the oncology portfolio to help bring together the latest research on precision oncology.

The thematic series is now open for submission of original research and review articles - for further information about this series please click here.

Top reviewers of 2018

A peer-reviewed journal would not survive without the generous time and insightful comments of the reviewers, whose efforts often go unrecognized. Although final decisions are always editorial, they are greatly facilitated by the deeper technical knowledge, scientific insights, understanding of social consequences, and passion that reviewers bring to our deliberations. For these reasons, the Editors and staff of Cancer Cell International would like to publicly acknowledge our top peer reviewers of 2018.

Christian StockChristian Stock

Dr. Christian Stock studied biology and chemistry at the Universities of Oldenburg, Bonn and Osnabrück (Germany), and holds a diploma in plant cell biology and a PhD in animal physiology. After postdoc positions at the Universities of Heidelberg and Hawai'I, he specialized in human physiology (Würzburg, Münster) and then joined the Dept. of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endocrinology at Hannover Medical School. Dr. Stock is interested in how ion transport processes across cellular membranes are involved in osmoregulation, cancer cell motility (migration and invasion), cell differentiation and malignant transformation, and how ion transport may create typical, locally limited pH-microenvironments in the cytosol and at the cell surface that regulate cell/cell and cell/matrix interactions.
