Abstract

This volume stems from the 1st International Conference on Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transitions (EMT), which was convened by the editors on October 5–8, 2003 in the beautiful setting of Port Douglas, Queensland, Australia. EMT, the name given to the transformation of cells arranged in a coherent layer – epithelial cells – to more individualistic and potential motile cells – mesenchymal cells – was recognized decades ago by Prof. Elisabeth (Betty) Hay (Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass., USA) as a primary mechanism in embryogenesis for remodelling tissues. More recently EMT has been seen as crucial to the spread and invasion of carcinoma, and more recently still, EMT-like changes have been detected in various pathologies marked by fi brosis. Despite the basic and clinical importance of EMT, this extremely rapidly growing fi eld had never previously had a conference devoted to it, and indeed the disciplines of developmental biology, cancer and pathology rarely interact although they have much to share. The chapters assembled for this volume encompass these three major themes of the meeting, development, pathology and cancer, and further highlight the commonality in terms of mechanisms and outcomes among them...

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
