A Message from the Minister of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan
Talent cultivation is an emerging issue related to the innovation of industrial and academic development. For science and technology promotion, early career development is therefore suggested as being essential for our young students/researchers. The increased opportunities from biotech market may stimulate qualified students who are trained in laboratories from all of the universities in Taiwan to contribute their efforts with passions. We expect talents with expertise to dedicate themselves to science and technology industries and to bring Taiwan a prosperous future.

The subject featured in the September issue highlights the state-of-the-art findings of molecular, cellular, and translational cancer biology achieved by several universities and institutes in Taiwan. From genetic signature identification for pathogenesis and diagnosis, cancer stemness and tumorigenesis, and multiple anticancer strategies, including gene targeting, oncogenic blockades, therapeutic antibodies, to cell therapy are all topics encompassed in this issue. These researchers’ innovative findings not only explore the novel evidence in the understanding of tumorigenesis but also increase our opportunities for precisely defending against cancers. Their inspiring stories will show you the innovative processes for the diagnostic and therapeutic “products” all made by our scientists. In this issue, all of the distinguished works in Taiwan are worthy of our applause!
