Special Issue in Life: Autophagy in Cancer: Current Advances and Challenges
Apoptosis and autophagy represent two fundamental cellular processes. They are involved in cell fate decision and they crosstalk each other through the involvement of different key players. Nonetheless, the ability of apoptosis to cause cell death is counterbalanced by its ability to inhibit the cell death mediated by autophagy. Autophagy can also inhibit apoptosis and cause cell death. The intimate crosstalk between apoptosis and autophagy is not definitely dissected yet. It can occur during embryogenesis, tissue development, cell maturation and senescence. Alterations of such intriguing mechanisms can occur during tumorigenesis and other pathologies in mammals. Further evidence is urgently needed to clarify these fine-tuned cellular processes.
This Special Issue of Life focuses on the recent advances in apoptosis and autophagy. We look forward to your submissions.

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. Life 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.
