    This Cell Death & Differentiation special issue on Autophagy brings together a series of commissioned reviews dedicated to the rapidly expanding autophagy field. Outstanding experts discuss how autophagy emerged as a key process in most organismal developmental stages, from fertilization throughout adult life and regeneration; how the removal of cellular organelles and infectious agents needs to be carefully controlled, impacting on the immune response and on an expanding list of diseases; what are the best strategies to modulate autophagy for the treatment of cancer and other pathologies? The readers will be challenged by this and other thought-provoking questions which we hope will help them charting innovative paths toward our thorough understanding of this fundamental process and its therapeutic applications.

    CDDpress, with its three journals (Cell Death & Differentiation, Cell Death & Disease, Cell Death Discovery), has just finished the publication for the year 2018, publishing insightful and high-impact articles on the frontlines of cell biology and biochemistry research. In 2018, the journals received nearly 5000 submissions and published around 1400 selected papers. Of particular interest were several pivotal and influential papers highlighting the role of p53 in cancer and other diseases. Here, with the "Best of CDDpress 2018 on p53" collection, we offer a selection of 2017-2018’s most impactful papers on p53. We hope that you will enjoy reading this special collection.

    This Special Issue of Cell Death & Differentiation focuses on necroinflammation, the inflammatory response to necrotic cell death. Leading experts in the field discuss the remarkable advances made in both basic and translational research, dissecting the highly interconnected pathways underlying various programmed necrosis forms, understanding how these pathways differently engage the immune system, how they impact on health and disease, and how they can be monitored and targeted in the clinical practice.

    The recent 26th ECDO conference ‘From small molecules to translational medicine’ in Saint-Petersburg (locally organized by Professors Zhivotovsky, Barlev and Lavrik) highlighted the recent developments in the field of cell death with a focus on the small molecules discovery and development. Pharmacological targeting via small molecule-based chemical probes has recently emerged as a valuable tool to delineate molecular mechanisms of various cell death pathways and pave the way towards novel therapeutic approaches in cancer, neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. We suggest the selection of articles from the CDD press that will lead through a breathtaking journey from the target –oriented drug development to translational applications.

  • Focus |

    This new web focus from Cell Death & Differentiation, Cell Death & Disease and Cell Death Discovery highlights some of the latest research from China in the related fields covered by those journals, including cell death, stem cells, autophagy, and tumor biology. In the last 30 years, China has experienced a booming economy, which has resulted in a huge increase in the funds channelled into biomedical research. More importantly, there is a steady increase in the number of talented young scientists who have trained in western countries and are returning to China. We are now witnessing the fastest development of biomedical research in China. This focus highlights the current progress in several important research areas, from mechanism-driven basic research to studies with translational potential.
