Two research groups led by Dr. Shui Qing Ye of University of Missouri Kansas City School of Medicine, Kansas City, USA and Dr. Dihua Yu of University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA, respectively, won the 2017 Ming K Jeang Award for Excellence in Cell & Bioscience.
We are very pleased to announce that two research groups, who each published an outstanding research article in Cell & Bioscience in 2017, 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 2017 to select the following two articles to receive the award [1, 2]:
