Special Issue in Cells: The Cell Biology and Immunology of Wound Healing
This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the 2020 Proteasome & Autophagy Congress, 22–24 April 2020, Clermont-Ferrand, France.
The Proteasome & Autophagy Congress is an international scientific event held every 2 years and taking place in Clermont-Ferrand, France. The goal of this congress is to cover up-to date knowledge on Ubiquitin Proteasome System (UPS) and Autophagy and their implication in different diseases.
Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved catabolic process, and research in that field is constantly growing. Autophagy degrades cellular proteins, damaged/or excess organelles (ERphagy, ribophagy, mitophagy, pexophagy), protein aggregates (aggrephagy), lipids (lipophagy) or invading pathogens (xenophagy). Autophagy is also interconnected with the UPS and plays a major role in cell homeostasis (particularly for eliminating abnormal organelles, controlling energy balance and protein trafficking).
This Special Issue offers the opportunity for meeting attendees to contribute and publish research findings, reviews, and perspectives in this area. We invite submissions that provide insight into molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate autophagy and the crosstalk with UPS to ensure proteostasis. We also welcome submissions that provide insight into the role these processes play in pathophysiological conditions and aging.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
