The Council of Europe plans to urge member states to sign and ratify the Oviedo Convention that would ban all inheritable modifications of the human germline. Such a policy would prevent research to develop new therapeutic options for inheritable diseases in Europe and is in sharp contrast to international developments.

Frank Gannon congratulates the ERC to its first 10 years and its great success in supporting research in the EU. All this would not have been possible without the strong engagement and support by the European scientific community.

Immunotherapy based on anti‐cancer vaccines and checkpoint inhibitors of the immune system could become the fourth therapeutic approach to treat cancer. It still requires a better understanding of how and against which cancers it is most efficient.

Communication between organelles occurs at membrane contact sites (MCSs) and allows the coordination of cellular functions and responses to various stimuli. This review discusses MCSs in the context of lipid transfer, the formation of lipid domains and Ca2+ signaling.

Ubiquitylation of Ci/Gli is known to regulate Hh signaling. This study identifies UbcD1 as the ubiquitin‐conjugating E2 enzyme responsible for Slimb‐Cul1 E3 ligase‐mediated partial degradation of Ci/Gli – a function that is conserved in metazoans.

SelT is required for ER homeostasis and appropriate hormone production and secretion. Its association with the STT3A‐containing OST complex in endocrine cells generates an OST form devoted to N‐glycosylation of glycohormones.

The heterodimeric kinesin‐2 motor differentiates between microtubules and axonemes to move forward. This study suggests that step adaptation prevents head‐on collisions of large intraflagellar trains moving in opposite directions in the cilium.

γδ17 T cells are thought to develop exclusively in the fetal/perinatal thymus. This study shows that differentiation of γδ17 T cells is also driven by IL‐23 in inflamed lymph nodes in a mouse model of MS, independent of specific antigens.

LmKKT1 is a Leishmania kinetoplastid kinetochore protein that shows single ChIP‐Seq peaks corresponding to the 36 centromeres. As a centrosomal marker, LmKKT1 is found at the periphery of the nucleolus during interphase and relocates to the spindle poles during mitosis.

Type VI secretion systems are protein delivery apparatuses that mediate predominately bactericidal activities. This study shows that a Vibrio T6SS utilizes a versatile repertoire of effectors to target both competing bacteria and neighbouring eukaryotic cells.

RADX/CXorf57 interacts with ssDNA at replication stress sites via its OB fold domains. Through an antagonistic relationship with RPA and other ssDNA‐binding factors, it protects against replication fork degradation and collapse during replication stress.

METTL16 is a human m6A methyltransferase that targets pre‐mRNAs, lncRNAs, and ncRNAs. METTL16 methylates A43 in the U6 snRNA sequence that base pairs with 5′ splice sites of pre‐mRNAs.

Genetic deletion of LRBA in mouse cochlear hair cells impairs stereociliar targeting of the actin adaptors radixin and Nherf2. As a result, Lrba‐KO hair bundles degenerate during early postnatal development, leading to a progressive form of sensorineural hearing impairment.

Cancer‐associated p53 missense mutants confer gain‐of‐function (GOF) and promote tumorigenesis. This study shows that one hallmark of p53 GOF mutants is Myb‐dependent transactivation of Cdc7, which leads to enhanced Cdc7/Dbf4‐dependent replication initiation in cancer cells.

The membrane‐bending protein Bin1 has been identified as a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. This study shows that Bin1 directly binds and stabilizes actin through its BAR domain, providing a possible link to tau‐induced pathological changes of the actin cytoskeleton.

The molecular mechanisms leading to ferroptotic cell death are poorly understood. This study shows that sustained cold stress induces ferroptosis and lipid peroxide accumulation, which activates the ASK1‐p38 signaling axis.
