Aims and Scope

Molecular Oncology is an Open Access international journal that highlights new discoveries, approaches, as well as technical developments, in basic, clinical and discovery-driven translational cancer research.

The emphasis is on work that significantly advances our understanding of disease processes leading to human tumour development and/or establishes novel concepts of clear clinical significance in diagnosis, prognosis and prevention strategies for cancer patients.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Key biological processes such as cell cycle; DNA repair; apoptosis; invasion and metastasis; angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis; cell signalling and interactive networks; immune response.
  • Emerging technologies (genomics, proteomics, functional genomics, metabolomics, tissue arrays, imaging), and model systems.
  • Biomarkers: diagnosis, prognosis, stratification and efficacy.
  • Cancer genetics, epigenetics, and genomic instability.
  • Minimal residual disease, pre-malignant lesions.
  • Cancer micro-environment.
  • Molecular pathology.
  • Tumour immunology.
  • Translational research.
  • Cancer therapy (target discovery, drug design, immunotherapy, combination therapies, resistance, and individualised treatment).
  • Chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.
  • Clinical pharmacology.
  • Clinical trials, integration of basic science into cancer clinical trials.
  • Molecular epidemiology.
