Physics Open Access

New Content Item

Our physics journals cover areas of physics from high energy physics; atoms, plasmas, and particles; to optics and photonics; and computational cosmology and astrophysics. Toward the more applied side of physics, you’ll find our nanoscience journals, and journals that, while grounded in physics, take a multidisciplinary, “convergence” approach to large problems.

New opportunities for collaboration through the Stand Up To Cancer convergence initiative

Last January, the Stand Up To Cancer (ST2C) charitable program announced the “Convergence 2.0” research initiative, which awards $11M to seven highly multidisciplinary teams in the field of cancer research. 

This research programme brings together life scientists, bioengineers and Microsoft machine learning experts to investigate new cancer therapies. David T. Ting, co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Cancer Convergence, and member of one of these "Convergence" Dream Teams, talks about the significance and potential reach of the programme.
