Topic Collection

Applications of cutting-edge technologies for the study of digestive diseases

We invite submissions focusing on cutting-edge technologies shaping gastroenterology, hepatology, and gastrointestinal endocrinology research and clinical practices. This topic collection aims to share insights into ground-breaking methods, emphasizing methodological details and reproducibility. Guidelines:
  • This collection seeks insights into recent innovative methods, whether original or published within 1-5 years
  • Articles should offer detailed methodological insights, including photographs and software codes
  • Preliminary data demonstrating method relevance is encouraged, especially if not previously illustrated
  • Original research demonstrating the application of cutting-edge technologies to circumvent previous limitations is very welcome. Literature reviews will not be considered. Commentaries, Expert Views, or Correspondence on current developments are welcome
  • Contributions related to project management and technology implementation are encouraged
Authors are encouraged to highlight the effort required for method development and optimization. This collection aims to elevate the visibility of pioneering work, and guide future research projects and clinical implementation. Target Audience: Researchers and clinicians in digestive diseases, hepatology, gastroenterology, and gastrointestinal endocrinology. Highlighted Technologies: Spatial biology, transcriptome, microbiome, circulating biomarkers, targeted drug delivery, personalized medicine, clinical and experimental imaging.

Submission Information

Please submit your manuscript before 1 December 2024 via the journal’s submission system. Please select the topic collection name ‘Applications of cutting-edge technologies for the study of digestive diseases’ when submitting your manuscript. Preliminary enquiries may be sent in the first instance to the Journal Editorial Office (egastro@jlu.edu.cn). Before submitting, please consult eGastroenterology's Author Guidelines for more information about the journal, manuscript types, and instructions for manuscript preparation. All submissions are subject to the journal's standard peer review process. Peer review will be managed by the Guest Editors. The final decision on all manuscripts will be made by the Editor-in-Chief. Authors whose papers are accepted for the topic collection following peer review will not be required to pay an APC; the APC will be covered by the journal.

Guest Editors

Adrien Guillot Charité University of Medicine Berlin, Germany
Dr. Guillot’s research at the Charité University of Medicine Berlin, Germany, focuses on the intricate mechanisms linking the immune system and liver parenchymal cells, having potent effects on liver disease initiation and progression particularly in cholangiopathies. Along those lines, Dr. Guillot came to optimize a flexible and highly versatile multiple immunostaining protocol together with associated software tools. Besides, Dr. Guillot is developing a perfusable, primary cell-based liver-on-a-chip system that allows for dynamic evaluation of molecular mechanisms and preliminary drug candidate investigations.
Bin Gao Laboratory of Liver Diseases, NIAAA NIH, USA
Dr. Gao’s laboratory at the NIH has been actively investigating liver immunology and liver biology. By using the knowledge gained through these studies, his laboratory is investigating the immunological aspects and molecular pathogenesis of alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD), metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease (MASLD), and liver cancer, and exploring novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of these maladies.
