Special Issue Information

Dear Collogues,

The balance between cell survival and cell death are controlled through a cascade of cellular events that must be tightly regulated in a normal cell. The impaired regulation of such balance may cause human diseases that could extensively vary from degenerative diseases that are associated with increased cell death to cellular escape from cell death that may cause different types of human cancer. As such, aberrant cell death and deregulation of the correlated processes are commonly detected in cancer cells. In this Special Issue, we welcome review and original research papers that provide mechanistic insights into different types of cell death in cancer cells. This includes (but is not limited to) the cell-death-associated processes that occur in cancer cells; drug repurposing studies that affect cell survival and cell death in cancer cells; molecular mechanisms of programmed cell death such as apoptosis, as well as autophagy and necrosis; and studies that address tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes. All manuscripts that highlight regulatory mechanisms at different levels of transcription/translation, post-transcription/post-translation, cellular metabolism, and protein homeostasis using different, molecular, cellular, and multi-omics approaches are welcome for submission.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
