Recent advances in cancer research and environmental toxicology
In current, cancer remains a serious disease endangering human health. This special issue mainly includes three aspects: (1) Environmental toxicology. A lot of environmental factors contribute to the development of cancer and related diseases, such as environmental organic pollutants, irradiation, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, tumor virus and so on. It is inevitable to directly or indirectly contact these environmental factors. Therefore, the effects of environmental factors on humans and mammals, including the toxicity, mutagenicity and carcinogenicity, are one focus of this special issue. (2) Cancer diagnosis and imaging. Early diagnosis of cancer is one of the bottlenecks in clinical setting, which relates to the prognosis of patients. Therefore, researches associated to cancer diagnosis and imaging (e.g., small molecule probe and biological probe, new imaging reagents or methods and principles, etc) are welcome. (3) Carcinogenesis and cancer prevention and treatment. The mechanism of carcinogenesis, cancer risk factors, cancer therapeutic methods, anticancer drugs both fall within the scope of the special issue. Of course, the experimental study and theoretical study (e.g., in silico modelling, computational toxicology, QSAR, artificial intelligence, machine learning and bioinformatics) as well as the review articles are both welcome. We encourage worldwide scholars to devote themselves to the development of cancer research and environmental toxicology. We welcome papers in related fields to contribute to our special issue, so as to make joint efforts in academic development.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be 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. 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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. Submitted papers should be well formatted and written in clear, concise English and should contain all essential data in order to make the presentation clear and the results of the study replicable. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see
