Yuan-Cheng Fung Best Paper Award 2020
Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues,

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 Medical Engineering (ICBME2020, November 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: http://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.

The winning paper will be selected by the Award Committee which includes all MCB associate editors, selected editorial board members, an appointed TSP representative, and an (honorary) member of the Fung family. The first author(s) of the winning paper will be awarded $1,000 USD, announced in November 2020. Second place awards are possible if justified by the quality of the papers received.

We are looking forward to receiving your wonderful paper and your participation and contribution to this great event. Together, we continue to grow the strong field of biomechanics established by Dr. Yuan- Cheng Fung. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us (Dalin Tang at dtang@wpi.edu, Lily Wang at mcb@techscience.com).
