Two research groups led by Yihong Ye of National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health, MD, USA and Dr. Lixin Wei of Medical Sciences Research Center, Renji hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai, China, won the 2013 Ming K Jeang Award for Excellence in Cell & Bioscience.

Editorial

We are very pleased to announce that two research groups, who each published an outstanding research article in Cell & Bioscience in 2013, have been selected to receive the Ming K Jeang Award for Excellence in Cell & Bioscience. The Ming K Jeang Award for Excellence in Cell & Bioscience was established in 2011 with a generous donation from the Ming K. Jeang Foundation to honor outstanding research articles published in Cell & Bioscience, the official journal of the Society of Chinese Bioscientists in America (SCBA; http://www.scbasociety.org). A committee of Cell & Bioscience Editors, chaired by Dr. Chris Lau, considered all research articles published in the journal in 2013 to select the following two articles to receive the award [1, 2].

Monoubiquitination of EEA1 regulates endosome fusion and trafficking.
