Commemorating the life and achievements of Prof. Ercole Sega
Prof. Sega was the director of the Experimental Department of the Regina Elena National Cancer Institute, and the founding Editor of Journal of Experimental & Clinical Cancer Research in 1982, serving as Editor-in-Chief until his death in 2000. He was an extraordinary mentor not only for science and editorial work but also for my daily life. I wish to honour Prof. Sega, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday on 21st May 2020 and on this occasion, on behalf of all the Editorial Board Members, thank him for his mentorship and renew my passionate and genuine effort to constantly increase JECCR scientific standards.
Mauro Castelli, Editor-in-Chief, JECCR
