About this Research Topic
Reviews and Advances in Apoptosis and Autophagy will publish high-quality scholarly review papers that address the molecular mechanisms in the progression of apoptosis and clearance of dead cells. Investigation into the crucial roles these play in organism homeostasis, immune cell development, pathogenic responses, inflammatory diseases, and cancer. Of additional interest is an understanding of the mechanisms of apoptosis and drug resistance to develop more effective and safer drugs for treatments.
Reviews and Advances in Apoptosis and Autophagy aim to highlight recent advances in the field, whilst emphasizing important directions and new possibilities for future inquiries. We encourage submissions from early-career researchers and emerging independent investigators.
The collection welcomes full-length or mini review papers as well as perspective, opinion, and hypothesis and theory articles. New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.
Keywords: apoptosis, autophagy, cell death
