Cancer Metastasis

Calls for Papers Collections

Cancer metastasis is responsible for 90% of all cancer deaths. The metastatic cascade is a multistep and sequential process involving cancer cell invasion, intravasation, circulation and colonization. However, our knowledge of the molecular and biochemical mechanisms that govern this process are still poorly understood. Furthermore, there is an urgent need to develop therapeutic interventions that target each part of the cascade. In this Call for Papers, we are inviting submissions that report on the biochemical and cell biological basis of metastasis, including but not limited to cell adhesion, cell migration, cytoskeletal dynamics, cell polarity, tumour heterogeneity, tumour dormancy and the tumour microenvironment. In addition, we welcome submissions that report on disease progression and outcomes, potential biomarkers for metastatic cancer as well as the development of anti-metastatic therapies, including drug development, drug delivery and personalized medicine. In this collection, we aim to highlight the diversity of research that is being conducted in the cancer metastasis field, including studies that focus on basic and translational research.
