The American Chemical Society (ACS) and ACS Publications will be in the Peach State this weekend, March 31 – April 4, 2019, for the 110th Annual AACR Meeting in Atlanta. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Integrative Cancer Science • Global Impact • Individualized Patient Care.” With so much of the meeting devoted to basic science discoveries, ACS Publications recognizes the value of chemistry as a foundation for progress in the field of cancer research.
Join ACS Publications at Booth 4144 to learn more about publishing with ACS journals at the interface of biology and chemistry, including ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science, ACS Synthetic Biology, ACS Chemical Biology, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Biochemistry, ACS Chemical Neuroscience and more!
Here are 6 Updates from the ACS Publications Bio Portfolio:
ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science
ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science Volume 2, Issue 1, is online and free to read for a limited time courtesy of ACS Publications. Read it now. The journal wants your research on innovative research across the broad spectrum of biological sciences —from basic and molecular sciences to translational preclinical studies.
ACS Chemical Biology
Luke Wiseman, Ph.D., Associate Professor of the Department of Molecular Medicine at Scripps Research, will guest edit an upcoming special issue on Proteolytic Regulation of Cellular Physiology. Learn more about submitting your research for this special issue.
ACS Chemical Biology also publishes research that serves the AACR community, like this ACS Editors’ Choice article on revamping a brain cancer drug in mice. Stop by the booth to learn more about this journal and claim an exclusive t-shirt!
The journal’s February special issue focused on “Delivery of Proteins and Nucleic Acids: Achievements and Challenges.” Jointly guest edited by Theresa Reineke and Ronald Raines, with Vincent Rotello, Editor-in-Chief, this issue discusses the many innovative delivery approaches involving the use of synthetic conjugates, polymer carriers, peptides, and scaffolds with responsive chemistry to overcome the many biological barriers that exist.

Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
Journal of Medicinal Chemistry will be publishing a Special Issue on “Drug Metabolism and Toxicology” and is also looking for submissions. Perspectives should be submitted by May 31, 2019, and all other manuscript types should be submitted by June 30, 2019. For more information, visit the journal homepage.
Don’t miss articles published by Journal of Medicinal Chemistry related to cancer research, such as this recent article on “Novel Triapine Derivative Induces Copper-Dependent Cell Death in Hematopoietic Cancers” and “Discovery of Novel Bromophenol–Thiosemicarbazone Hybrids as Potent Selective Inhibitors of Poly(ADP-ribose) Polymerase-1 (PARP-1) for Use in Cancer”.
Molecular Imaging: A Virtual issue
From live-cell microscopic technologies, such as atomic force microscopy (AFM), to full body clinical imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET), molecular imaging has led to improvements in the diagnosis and management of cancer. This virtual issue features articles from molecular imaging laboratories across the globe published in 12 various journals. Read this virtual issue now.
Publish Open Access with ACS
Maybe you need to publish your research Open Access to satisfy a funding requirement. Maybe you just want to make sure you reach a wide audience with the cancer research field. Either way, 100% of ACS journals can publish your work Open Access, and can meet even the strictest CC-BY license funding requirements.
Additionally, ACS Publications features two widely-read, fully open access journals, ACS Central Science and ACS Omega. Check out these recent cancer research articles:
Imaging Mass Spectrometry Reveals Crosstalk between the Fallopian Tube and the Ovary that Drives Primary Metastasis of Ovarian Cancer
ACS Cent. Sci., 2018, 4 (10), pp 1360–1370
Fluorescence-Based Ratiometric Nanosensor for Selective Imaging of Cancer Cells
ACS Omega, 2019, 4 (1), pp 1592–1600
