Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Worldwide, lung cancer is the second most common cancer and by far the leading cause of cancer-related death. Yet, over the last decade, substantial progress throughout the lung cancer continuum has led to improved outcomes and patient experiences. This Special Issue focuses on these multifaceted advances in diagnostics and therapeutics for lung cancer patients. While the implementation of population-based low-dose CT screening programmes will result in the long-awaited shift towards curable stages, modern diagnostic and therapeutic concepts integrate personalized approaches as well the latest therapeutics and technology into a multidisciplinary environment. We cordially invite the submission of research articles that will improve our knowledge of these topics. This commemorative Special Issue will publish original research and review articles.
