Cancer is the most common cause of death in the western world today. It is now recognized that cancer is actually a complex array of different diseases, with different genetics and different behaviors. Understanding the genetic alterations that are typical of cancer development has completely revolutionarized research, and the way we treat patients. An astounding and increasing body of literature on cancer research make this field one of the most studied in medicine. Never before were there so many discoveries made that are translated into clinical practice at a rapidly increasing pace. These discoveries are changing the way that cancer is diagnosed, monitored and treated. Cancer treatment has become highly interdisciplinary and complex, and it relies on the expertises of many specialists. Frontiers in Oncology is an open-access journal that aims at publishing the best research across the entire field of oncology. The journal welcomes outstanding contributions in any domain of cancer research: from basic laboratory research to clinical investigation, from prevention to treatment, and from imaging studies to novel treatment strategies. Frontiers in Oncology publishes articles on the most outstanding discoveries across a wide research spectrum of Oncology. The mission of Frontiers in Oncology is to bring all relevant Oncology areas together on a single platform.
