As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review
Call for papers:
Autophagy Biology: Autophagy and the Cellular Mechanism of Diseases
This collection aims to address essential molecular and cellular mechanisms for understanding autophagy and its comprehensive associations with a variety of conditions.

Dr Yun-Bo Shi, Founding Editor-in-Chief
Dr Shi is a senior investigator and the Chief of Section on Molecular Morphogenesis, NICHD, NIH, and is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of Cell & Bioscience in his personal capacity. Dr Shi received his BS degree from Wuhan University, China, in 1982 and his PhD degree from University of California, Berkeley, CA, in 1988. After postdoctoral training at the Carnegie Institution, he established his own research group at NICHD, NIH, in 1992. Dr Shi has been studying the molecular basis of thyroid hormone regulation of vertebrate development by using Xenopus metamorphosis as a model system. Dr Shi has published over 130 research papers and 50 reviews/book chapters, edited three books and written a monograph on amphibian metamorphosis.
