Abstract

Two research groups led by Dr. Jim Hu of University of Toronto, Canada and Dr. Renping Zhou of Rutgers University, USA, respectively, won the 2016 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 2016, 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. Dong-Yan Jin, considered all research articles published in the journal in 2016 to select the following two articles to receive the award [1, 2]:

Epithelium-specific Ets transcription factor-1 acts as a negative regulator of cyclooxygenase-2 in human rheumatoid arthritis synovial fibroblasts

Chan-Mi Lee, Sahil Gupta, Jiafeng Wang, Elizabeth M. Johnson, Leslie J. Crofford, John C. Marshall, Mohit Kapoor and Jim Hu.

EphA5 and EphA6: regulation of neuronal and spine morphology

Gitanjali Das, Qili Yu, Ryan Hui, Kenneth Reuhl, Nicholas W. Gale and Renping Zhou.

Congratulations to these two groups of investigators for jobs well done!

We are looking forward to receiving contributions of outstanding research articles from the scientific community in 2017 and beyond.
