About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will bring together reviews, perspective and original research articles covering the latest breakthroughs from the fields of cell cycle, DNA damage and telomere research presented at the 19th ACCM meeting, held in Sydney Australia from the 17th-19th of June, 2019.
The Australian Cell Cycle Meeting (ACCM) began in the late 1990’s 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 recognised 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.
This Research Topic, curated by Dr Elizabeth Caldon and A/Prof. Andrew Burgess, with assistance from the ACCM organising committee, aims to collate the latest ideas and information spanning the fields of cell cycle, DNA damage and telomere research and how these findings can be applied clinically.
Keywords: cell cycle, DNA damage response, telomere
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
