Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is the second edition of the previous one, Oncology: State-of-the-Art Research in UK. (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/cancers/special_issues/Oncology_UK).

Among many other countries, the UK is at the forefront of cancer research. There are commitments from stakeholders from academic institutions, health service organisations, industries, funding bodies and public and patient advocacy groups to support the research of all types of cancer. We have a unique National Health Service, which emphasises the needs of everyone and is free at the point of delivery. It believes that integrating research into the health service organisation will improve outcomes and transform cancer care.

In this Special Issue, we aim to showcase state-of-the-art research in oncology in the UK. We invite submissions looking at all kinds of research covering all cancer types and stages, from basic laboratory research to translational and clinical research, including cohort studies, randomised controlled trials and epidemiological studies. Narrated reviews describing the history and significant contributions of cancer research in the UK are also welcome.  

Prof. Dr. Kwok-Leung Cheung
