With the success of the 1st Yuan-Cheng Fung Best Paper Award presented at the International Conference on Biomechanics and Medical Engineering (ICBME2019), on behalf of the editorial board of Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics (MCB, ISSN: 1556-5297 (printed); ISSN: 1556-5300 (online)) and Tech Science Press (TSP), we hereby announce the 2nd Yuan-Cheng Fung Best Paper Award of 2020. The 2020 award will be presented at the 2nd International Conference on Biomechanics and Mechanobiology in Biomedical Engineering (BMBME2020, October 29 - November 1, 2020, Brisbane, Australia).
The Yuan-Cheng Fung Award aims to recognize the distinguished researcher(s) whose article published in MCB reflects outstanding, creative and groundbreaking research contributions to theoretical and experimental biomechanics and spawns new ideas for solving the problems facing the biomechanics engineering science community at the molecular, cellular, and organ levels.
We cordially invite you to submit your outstanding work to MCB to join the competition (submission website: tspsubmission.com/index.php/mcb). Since this is near the end of the year, papers published in MCB from the 4th Issue of 2019 to the 3rd Issue of 2020 (4 issues) are eligible for consideration to receive the 2020 award.
