Call for papers

We are happy to announce that

Prof. Dr. Markus Ritter, Director of the Institute for Physiology and Pathophysiology at the Paracelsus University Salzburg, Austria

is supporting us as a guest editor on a special issue on:

“Mechanisms and Functional Significance of Cell Volume Regulation”.

Cell Volume Regulation is a fundamental biological principle that applies to virtually all living matter. The underlying molecules and mechanisms that serve to tightly adjust the volume of a cell to its given needs and the functional sequel arising thereof have been intensively investigated. The body of knowledge arising from this research is impressively growing and extends to all fields of biomedical research and beyond.

If you are interested to contribute to this special issue (deadline is the 31th of October 2020), please send a cover letter and your manuscript to

Current Volume 54/2020

Issue 5 (in progress)

Scope & Aims

Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry is a multidisciplinary scientific forum dedicated to advancing the frontiers of basic cellular research. It addresses scientists from both the physiological and biochemical disciplines as well as related fields such as genetics, molecular biology, pathophysiology, pathobiochemistry and cellular toxicology & pharmacology. Original papers and reviews on the mechanisms of intracellular transmission, cellular metabolism, cell growth, differentiation and death, ion channels and carriers, and the maintenance, regulation and disturbances of cell volume are presented. Appearing monthly under peer review, Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry takes an active role in the concerted international effort to unravel the mechanisms of cellular function.
