Diamandis, Division Head of Clinical Biochemistry in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology at the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada and a member of the Editorial Board of MOLONC commented, "This is a major milestone. I have no doubt that MOLONC will become a key journal in the field"

It is indeed recognition of the exemplary work of our highly prestigious editor-in-chief, Julio Celis and his dedicated editorial board members."
FEBS having pioneered the creation of scientific publication forums for European life scientists by its two leading journals, the FEBS Journal and FEBS Letters, is happy to see the progress of its third journal Molecular Oncology.
