Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

From July 11 to 13, 2022, the 11th YBNCT Meeting will be organized as a hybrid event by our colleagues at the Budker Institute in Novosibirsk. The journal Cells has decided to publish a Special Issue for the occasion, with the stated goal of giving young scientists the opportunity to publish their research results in a high-ranking peer-reviewed journal. The publisher MDPI has further proposed that this Special Issue be included in the Special Issue Mentor Program. This program provides an opportunity for early career scientists (new faculty, postdoc graduate students, etc.) to enhance their editing, networking, and organizational skills, and to work closely with the journal to gain more editorial experience. Aleksandr Makarov and Iuliia Taskaeva will edit this Special Issue as guest editors with Prof. Sauerwein as a mentor. 

The Special Issue is entitled "Cell Research for BNCT". 

We invite your contributions, in the form of original research articles, reviews, or shorter perspective articles, on all cellular aspects related to the theme of BNCT.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Radiation biology for BNCT;
  • Cell-based studies;
  • Preclinical animal studies;
  • Drug development for BNCT;
  • Impact of BNCT on the proteomic profile and omics approaches;
  • Boron imaging;
  • Mechanisms of action of BNCT;
  • Abscopal effect of BNCT;
  • Early clinical trials;
  • Biomarkers for therapeutic optimization.
