The 2012 Ming K Jeang award for excellence in cell & bioscience

Abstract

Three research groups led by Dr. Lixin Feng of Shanghai JiaoTong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China, Dr. Walter Wahli of University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland, and Dr. Gutian Xiao of University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Pittsburgh, USA, won the 2012 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 2012, 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 2012 to select the three articles to receive the award [13]:
