About this Research Topic
The Australian Cell Cycle Meeting began in the late 1990s as a small Australian-only workshop, with the aim of bringing together cell cycle researchers from across the country. Over the past two decades, the meeting has grown from the initial 30-40 researchers into a much larger conference encompassing the fields of DNA damage and telomere biology. The conference is now run every 2 years and has become an internationally recognized and respected meeting. Importantly, the meeting still maintains its early goal of providing a platform for students and junior scientists to present their research in a friendly and collaborative environment. Following the success of the 2019 meeting and dedicated Research Topic, Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology and the meeting organizers are proud to be collaborating again.
The cell cycle, DNA damage, and telomeres are crucial factors in the development and progression of cancer and other human disease. Targeting these processes holds great potential for the development of new therapies. Therapies such as CDK4/6 inhibitors, PARP inhibitors, and ATR inhibitors are at the cutting edge of clinical trials.
This Research Topic, curated by Andrew Deans, Elaine Sanij, and Vi Wickramasinghe, will showcase Original Research, Reviews, and Perspective articles covering the latest breakthroughs from the fields of cell cycle, DNA damage, and telomere research presented at the ACDTM 2023. It aims to highlight the latest findings and ideas in these fields of research, with particular attention to the following subtopics:
• Genome Stability in human disease
• Telomeres and DNA damage response
• Cell Cycle and Senescence
• Genomic signatures in cancer
• Recombination and Replication
• Immune response and genome stability
• Telomere and telomerase regulation
• Cell Cycle in Cancer and Therapy
• New therapeutic opportunities in cell cycle DNA repair and telomere research.
