Co-Editors Daniel J Klionsky and Fulvio Reggiori are excited to announce the launch of a new open access sister journal to Autophagy, introducing Autophagy Reports.

Autophagy Reports is a peer reviewed, open access journal publishing research on all aspects of autophagic processes.

Autophagy Reports covers the following topics: autophagic processes (i.e., the lysosome/vacuole-dependent degradation of intracellular material); the connections between autophagy and various aspects of human health and disease including cancer, neurodegeneration, aging, diabetes, myopathies and heart disease. We are interested in all experimental systems, from yeast to plant and human. Suggestions for appropriate specialized topics are welcome.

Prof. Pooneh Mokarram is thrilled to introduce the International Autophagy Research Center at the Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (Iran).

The center received its approval from the Ministry of Health and Medical Education in 2020 with the positive opinion of the Development Council. It was established in 2020 with the management of Prof. Pooneh Mokarram, faculty member of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, and officially started its work.
