Methods and Models in Mammary Gland Biology and Breast Cancer Research

Scientific discoveries go hand in hand with our ability to find ways to model phenomena of interest, to experimentally test hypotheses, and to extract information. Therefore, a handful of protocols, inherited from trustworthy seasoned colleagues, together with new or tweaked protocols developed on a trial-error basis as well as new approaches enabled by recent technological advances are an essential part of every scientist’s toolbox. To enable dissemination of protocols as well as discussion on methods, models and techniques used in mammary gland biology and breast cancer research, we are opening this collection of articles. We welcome a wide range of articles, including primary research articles, protocol-based articles, reviews, and perspectives. Potential techniques include but are not limited to cell and tissue culture techniques, image or data analysis tools, animal models and in vivo approaches, high-throughput methods etc.

This collection is associated with the conference “The 14th Annual Workshop of the European Network for Breast Development and Cancer: Methods in Mammary Gland Biology and Breast Cancer”, which will take place on 27-29 April 2023 in Switzerland. Submission to this collection is open to the worldwide scientific community working in the respective field of research. To express your interest to contribute, please contact the Editors of this collection: Zuzana Sumbalova Koledova (koledova@med.muni.cz) and Johanna Englund (johanna.englund@helsinki.fi)

Important dates:

The deadline for abstract submission is the 1st of September 2023. Please send your abstract to the Editor.

The deadline for manuscript submission is the 15th of November 2023.

Publishing Model: Open Access

Deadline: Feb 15, 2024

PDGFB in Breast Cancer Initiation, Progression, and Metastasis

The family of platelet derived growth factors (PDGF) encompasses proangiogenic factors, which have been associated with progression of malignancies, including breast cancer. Recent studies indicated that expression of PDGFB is an important prognostic factor in certain breast cancer types, and that combination of PDGFR inhibitors with targeted therapy could significantly increase survival. In this cross-journal collection, we welcome a wide range of articles on the role of PDGFB in mammary gland development, breast cancer initiation, progression, and metastasis, including primary research articles, reviews, and perspectives. To express your interest to contribute, please contact the Editor-in-Chief of the respective journal: Journal of Mammary Gland Biology and Neoplasia: Zuzana Koledova (koledova@med.muni.cz) Breast Cancer Research & Treatment: William J.
