Cancer Nature (CN) is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by SciTeMed Publishing Group.
Cancer Nature provides an integrated view of modern oncology across all disciplines.The journal covers all aspects of cancer research, including the pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancers. Cancer Nature welcomes submissions concerning molecular and cellular biology, genetics, epidemiology, and clinical trials.
Cancer Nature provides readers with critically peer-reviewed, carefully selected and up-to-date publications. All the manuscripts submitted to CN will be subjected to peer-review by the Editors of the respective specialty section. The review process will be conducted by the handling editor alone or by collaborating with the outside experts. The decision will be finalized by the editor considering and analyzing the minimum of two independent reviewer’s comment. Authors may submit manuscripts and track the current status of their manuscript through the submission tracking system. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their comment to the editor through the same system, and editors can manage or monitor the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Jason Cheng, MD, PhD, serves as an assistant professor and an attending physician in the Section of Hematopathology, University of Chicago. Dr. Cheng obtained his medical degrees Peking (Beijing) Medical University and Kunming Medical University in China. He received his PhD under the guidance of Dr. Rudy L. Juliano, in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). He pursued his post-doctoral training in yeast genetics and gene regulation in the laboratory of Dr. Mark Ptashne, at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Dr. Cheng completed his residency in anatomic and clinical Pathology at University of Chicago and his fellowship training in Hematopathology under the guidance of Dr. James W. Vardiman at the University of Chicago. During his PhD. at UNC-CH, he made an invention of a novel technology (US patent no 5,869,250, 1999) for identity sequence-specific DNA-binding peptides for constructing artificial transcription factors and gene regulation. During his residency and clinical fellow training, he first identified the loss of protein expression of INI1/hSNF5/BAF47/SMARCB1 as a hallmark for diagnosis of renal medullary carcinoma (Modern Pathology, 2008). He also won the 2008 Pathologist-in-Training Award from the Society for Hematopathology and the 2008 Paul E. Strandjord Young Investigator Award from the Academy of Clinical Physicians and Scientists for conducting the first genome-wide epigenetic profiling of DNA and H3K27 trimethylation in clinical MDS specimens.

He published multiple papers in peer-reviewed, high-impact factor journals including Leukemia, PNAS, Immunity and Molecular Cell.
An important aspect of the analysis of the proliferation of cell populations as composed of a set of intercommunicating logistic domains is the nature of the barriers between adjacent domains and the regulation of cellular migration between them. The nature of these inter-domain boundaries is discussed in relation to the central role of L-type calcium channels in the control of cell motility and it is proposed that domain boundaries are determined by proteoglycans which act as calcium chelators and hence regulate the local extracellular Ca++ concentration. The selective migratory advantage gained by overexpression of calcium channels is briefly alluded to.
