Interests: theoretical biophysics; applied computer sciences; mathematical oncology; applied statistical physics; mathematical epidemiology of infectious diseases
Background: Mathematical and computational models are an important tool to obtain useful information on tumor growth, response to therapy and survival probability. A further step towards clinical applications is the development of a flexible mathematical/algorithmic formulation for personalized medicine.
Aim and scope: This Special Issue will focus on mathematical and computational modeling for cancer growth, evolution and therapy, including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and their synergies.
History: In recent decades, the quantitative formulation of cancer progression has made great developments using microscopical and macroscopical models.
Cutting-edge research: Recently, the mathematical/computational study of synergy among different therapies has attracted increased interest. The patient-oriented forecast for clinical decisions is another important sector in its evolution.
We are looking for original studies based on mathematical and computational models and/or validated phenomenological approaches for patient-oriented tumor progression during and after therapy.

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. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
