We believe that these three exceptional papers are valuable contributions to the cell biology and molecular biology research field. On behalf of the Prize Awarding Committee and the Editorial Board of Cells, we would like to congratulate these teams for their excellent work. In recognition of their accomplishments, Dr. Tetyana Shandala, Dr. Ram V. Devireddy, and Dr. Gary L. Bowlin will receive the privilege of publishing a paper, free of charge, in Open Access format in Cells, respectively, after the usual peer-review procedure.
