Basel Biology Research Paper

Cells has instituted a “Best Paper” award to recognize the most outstanding papers in the area of cell biology, molecular biology, and biophysics, published in Cells. We are pleased to announce the first “Cells Best Paper Award” for 2015. The winners were chosen by the Editor-in-Chief and selected Editorial Board Members from all the research papers published in 2013 and 2014. We are pleased to announce that the following three papers have won the Cells Best Paper Award in 2015:

  • First Prize
    • Tetyana Shandala, Chiaoxin Lim, Alexandra Sorvina and Douglas A. Brooks

      A Drosophila Model to Image Phagosome Maturation

      Cells2013, 2(2), 188-201; doi:10.3390/cells2020188.

      Available online: http://www.mdpi.com/2073-4409/2/2/188/htm

      “There is a lot of research aimed at unraveling mechanism of phagosomes’ formation. Using Drosophila as a model is a very interesting approach.”—Dr. Alexander E. Kalyuzhny

      “Nice in vivo study showing Rab7 involvement in phagosome maturation.”—Dr. Heike Fölsch

  • Second Prize
    • Sreedhar Thirumala, Jeffrey M. Gimble and Ram V. Devireddy

      Methylcellulose Based Thermally Reversible Hydrogel System for Tissue Engineering Applications

      Available online: http://www.mdpi.com/2073-4409/2/3/460/htm

      “Hydrogels are of interest to many applications in tissue engineering including stem cells.”—Dr. Alexander E. Kalyuzhny

  • Third Prize
    • Isaac A. Rodriguez, Scott A. Sell, Jennifer M. McCool, Gunjan Saxena, Andrew J. Spence and Gary L. Bowlin

      A Preliminary Evaluation of Lyophilized Gelatin Sponges, Enhanced with Platelet-Rich Plasma, Hydroxyapatite and Chitin Whiskers for Bone Regeneration

We believe that these three exceptional papers are valuable contributions to the cell biology and molecular biology research field. On behalf of the Prize Awarding Committee and the Editorial Board of Cells, we would like to congratulate these teams for their excellent work. In recognition of their accomplishments, Dr. Tetyana Shandala, Dr. Ram V. Devireddy, and Dr. Gary L. Bowlin will receive the privilege of publishing a paper, free of charge, in Open Access format in Cells, respectively, after the usual peer-review procedure.

Developmental Biology (DB) publishes original research on mechanisms of development, differentiation, and growth in animals and plants at the molecular, cellular, genetic and evolutionary levels. Areas of particular emphasis include transcriptional control mechanisms, embryonic patterning, cell-cell interactions, growth factors and signal transduction, and regulatory hierarchies in developing plants and animals.

Research Areas Include:

• Molecular genetics of development
• Control of gene expression
• Cell interactions and cell-matrix interactions
• Mechanisms of differentiation
• Growth factors and oncogenes
• Regulation of stem cell populations
• Evolution of developmental control
• Gametogenesis and fertilization

DB authors can choose among a selection of article types– research papers, short communications, technical reports, resource papers, reviews and perspectives – and benefit from academic editors who are practicing scientists, fast publication, no color figures or page charges, flexible publication (open access or subscription) and a vast readership with more than 3 million downloads a year.

Subscription articles published in Developmental Biology will become accessible to non-subscribers 12 months after publication on ScienceDirect. SDB members benefit from immediate free online access to all published articles.
