Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The previous Special Issue Series of the Journal of Clinical Medicine, entitled ‘Integrating Clinical and Translational Research Networks—Building Team Medicine’, highlighted our collective experience from the City of Hope and was well received. Thus far, the two Series published in 2021 and 2023, which included a total of 33 articles, have thus far received over 75,000 views; these have articles have been collectively cited more than 135 times.

Buoyed by the enthusiastic response from our peers and colleagues, we have embarked on establishing Volume 3. The basic theme is the same, namely integrating academic medical centers with community hospitals to ensure that all patients regardless of their physical proximity to major medical institutions can benefit from recent clinical advances. However, in Volume 3, we have ventured to include our colleagues internationally. Our aim here is to highlight translational research approaches that leverage the combined knowledge, skills, experience, expertise, and vision of clinicians in academic medical centers and their affiliated community centers and hospitals, together with those of basic research scientists, computational scientists, bioinformaticians and data scientists. We look forward to sharing our Team Medicine experience with our colleagues and trust that they will find the approach described in the articles embodied in this Special Issue helpful in guiding their approach to treating cancer patients.
