New thematic series: Circular RNA in cancer

Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to: 

- The role of circRNAs in cancer initiation and progression; 
- The potential of circRNAs as biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and/or prognosis;
- The potential of circRNAs as therapeutic targets for cancer.

The submission deadline for the series is May 31st, 2020. Submissions can be made through the journal's Editorial Manager system.

Aims and scope

Cancer Cell International publishes articles on all aspects of cancer cell biology, originating largely from, but not limited to, work using cell culture techniques. Read more 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.

Spotlight: Associate Editor

Andy Tao Yin LauAndy Tao Yin Lau

After obtaining his PhD degree (Molecular Biology) at the University of Hong Kong, Dr. Andy Tao Yin Lau joined the University of Minnesota (USA) as a postdoctoral fellow on Cancer and Epigenetics Research. Since 2011, he has been working as a Principal Investigator and established the Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Epigenetics at Shantou University Medical College (P. R. China). Dr. Lau’s research team studies the molecular basis of cancers by using “OMICS” approaches. For example, he has applied proteomic-based platform to study the proteome and epiproteome responses of carcinogen-exposed lung cells/anticancer drug-treated lung cancer cells and the identification of novel biomarker signatures. Moreover, he is interested in functional characterization of novel protein post-translational modifications and their relationship in human diseases including cancers.

Koraljka Gall TrošeljKoraljka Gall Trošelj

Dr. Koraljka Gall Trošelj earned her MD degree at the University of Zagreb (Croatia), from where she received both a Masters and PhD degree in biomedicine – molecular oncology. She is a Fulbright Scholar who spent two years in the US at the Weill Cornell Medical School in New York City. Dr. Gall Trošelj is currently the head of the Laboratory for Epigenomics in the Division of Molecular Medicine at the Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Croatia. Dr. Gall Troselj is particularly interested in modulation of the epigenome by natural compounds, especially curcumin, in the context of chemoprevention. She has developed a fruitful collaboration with Croatian clinicians, especially oncologists, head and neck surgeons and pathologists. Her current national research project, funded by the Croatian Science Foundation (NRF2 at the crossroads of epigenetic remodeling, metabolism and proliferation of cancer cells), is focused on discovering mechanisms of NRF2 and EZH2 interplay in a setting of various kinds of cellular stresses to which cancer cells are or may be exposed.
