A Cell Press partner journal
See the unseen. Change the unchanged.
The Innovation í¬ published by Cell Press in partnership with members of the Youth
Innovation Promotion Association (YIPA),a part of the Chinese Academy of
Sciencesí¬is a new broad-scope, open access journal publishing basic and applied
research that has impact for the benefit of society.
On the cover: Humans have created civilization, promoting history moving in a spiral. Emerging theories and technologies bring development and prosperity, but with emergent global challenges. Today, we are witnessing the beginning of a new era, which is dominated by artificial intelligence. We have never been as eager for innovation as we are today, in order to explore the future of science.

Multidisciplinary International Collaboration


As I write this article, we are experiencing two epidemics: a global epidemic of disease (COVID-19) caused by a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), and an epidemic of panic caused by the uncertainty about the disease and its consequences. A solution to both of these epidemics is, of course, knowledge derived through research. Globally, efforts are now focused on understanding the natural history of the COVID-19 infection and on development of interventions, including vaccines to prevent infection and treatments for the disease. In addition, we need research on how to better convey information to the general public to avoid over-reaction and panic in the face of uncertainty. Research on coronaviruses, like any other research, is most effective if it is adequately funded and researchers have the necessary skill sets. For COVID-19, we need research expertise in both basic and applied sciences, including not only health sciences but also technological sciences, social sciences, biology, chemistry, and epidemiology, to maximize the impact and benefit of this targeted research to the community.
