Abstract

Three research groups led by Dr. Robert Clarke of Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC, USA; Dr. Lixin Wei of Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai, China; and Dr. Zhiming Zhang of Xiamen University, Xiamen, Fujian, China, won the 2014 Ming K Jeang Award for Excellence in Cell & Bioscience.

Editorial

We are very pleased to announce that three research groups, who each published an outstanding research article in Cell & Bioscience in 2014, 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; www.scbasociety.org). A committee of Cell & Bioscience Editors, chaired by Dr. Dong-Yan Jin, considered all research articles published in the journal in 2014 to select the following three articles to receive the award [13]:
  • Mitochondria directly donate their membrane to form autophagosomes during a novel mechanism of parkin-associated mitophagy

    Katherine L Cook, David R Soto-Pantoja, Mones Abu-Asab, Pamela AG Clarke, David D Roberts, Robert Clarke Cell & Bioscience 2014, 4:16 (27 March 2014)

  • Autophagy protects against palmitate-induced apoptosis in hepatocytes

    Ning Cai, Xue Zhao, Yingying Jing, Kai Sun, Shufan Jiao, Xiaojing Chen, Haozheng Yang, Yan Zhou, Lixin Wei Cell & Bioscience 2014, 4:28 (21 May 2014)
