A new pubcast has been released for the Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research scientific journal, associated to the International Federation of Pigment Cell Societies (IFPCS). This new video refers to the work of Arup K. Indra’s laboratory (Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, USA) on “Endothelin-1 is a transcriptional target of p53 in epidermal keratinocytes and regulates ultraviolet-induced melanocyte homeostasis” by Hyter et al., an article that was published in Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research, Volume 26, Issue 2, pages 247–258, March 2013 (Article first published online: 24 JAN 2013).

Welcome to the Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop 2013! The 2013 Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop is an opportunity for international researchers to meet and discuss the latest and best research on the development of the pigment cell in all species. The meeting will consist of a series of research talks selected from the abstracts and poster presentations, as well as keynote speakers. We are delighted that we will have two outstanding keynote speakers: Greg Barsh (Stanford and HudsonAlpha) and Emi Nishimura (Toyko Medical and Dental University). The meeting will take place at the ancient University of Edinburgh, nestled under the dramatic hills of Arthur’s seat and the Royal Holyrood Park.
As pigment cell biology is important to the hair and skin, the meeting has been timed to be between the 7th World Hair Congress (4-6 May 2013, Edinburgh, UK) and the International Investigative Dermatology Meeting (8-11 May 2013, Edinburgh, UK). This will certainly provide an opportunity for participants at both conferences to attend and interact with the Developmental Biology Group.
The Pigment Cell Developmental Biology Workshop 2013 is sponsored by the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR), Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research (PCMR) and the Medical Research Council, Human Genetics Unit (MRC-HGU).
Looking forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!

The new Impact Factor (IF) for the scientific journal Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research (PCMR) was released last week by Journal Citation Reports (JCR), corresponding to its 2011 release, and it has increased to 5.059! Furthermore, the journal has continued its progression in the different rankings where it is considered, namely: 2/58 (Dermatology: Q1), 31/194 (Oncology; Q1), 51/180 (Cell Biology; Q2). This high IF comes from 602 citations in the 2011 literature to papers published in PCMR in 2009 and 2010. Current (Ze’ev Ronai) and past (Colin Goding) Editors-in-Chief, along with their Executive Editors (Heinz Arnheiter and Glenn Merlino) and all members of the Editorial Board must be praised for their hard work and this great achievement. The International Federation of Pigment Cell Societies (IFPCS), whose official journal is PCMR wishes to congratulate them all!.
