George Adrian Calin received both his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at Carol Davila University of Medicine in Bucharest, Romania. Dr. Calin was the first to discover the link between microRNAs and human cancers, a finding considered as a milestone in microRNA research history. He is presently a Professor in Translational Molecular Pathology and Leukemia Departments at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and studies the roles of microRNAs and other non-coding RNAs in cancer initiation and progression and in immune disorders, as well as the mechanisms of cancer predisposition linked to non-codingRNAs. Furthermore, he is actively involved in the journal’s editorial work as a Chief Editor of the MDPI Non-CodingRNA journal, as a Senior Editor of the AACR journals Cancer Research and Molecular Cancer Research, Section Editor of the FESEB Press journal Molecular Oncology, an Associate Editor of the BMC’s journal Molecular Cancer or the Cell Press journal Molecular Therapeutics. He strongly believes that reviewing manuscripts is an essential part of publishing discoveries!
