Call for papers: Next generation sequencing studies with relevance to the understanding of disease mechanisms
The coupling of pathology with massively parallel sequencing studies provides a unique opportunity to further our understanding of the pathophysiological and pathogenetic mechanisms of human disease, a major interest of The Journal of Pathology.
The Journal is now soliciting submissions of primary research based on massively parallel sequencing taking advantage of novel insights into the genetic basis of human diseases, including but not restricted to, the identification of new genotype-phenotype associations and novel driver mutations, characterisation of patterns of genetic instability, and on the topic of intra-tumour genetic heterogeneity.

New Virtual Issue: Stem cells, clonal expansion and cancer progression
Stem cell biology is very much at the heart of the disease that is most familiar to histopathologists — cancer. This virtual issue of the has compiled a series of papers published recently in the Journal of Pathology dealing with stem cell behaviour in normal human epithelial tissues, their role in tumour initiation, tumour progression (including field cancerization) and metastasis, particularly the role of the microenvironment and epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT).

2012 Annual Review Issue: The Cell Biology of Disease
"This 2012 Annual Review Issue of The Journal of Pathology argues strongly that cell biology, in its many disciplines, underpins the foundation of our understanding of the mechanisms of disease—the holy grail of pathology. Our increasing knowledge of the human genome will not be enough to attain this goal without parallel developments in our comprehension of the results, at the cellular level, of these genetic changes. In the end, it is cell biology and cell biologists who will deliver this mission."
