Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Glioblastoma remains the most common primary malignant brain tumour in adults. Despite the combination of novel therapeutical approaches, it remains a deadly malignancy with an abysmal prognosis. This Special Issue in Genes on “The Genomics of Glioblastoma” will refine the understanding of tumour heterogeneity and microenvironment, providing new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of glioblastoma. We especially welcome original translational research studies (in vivo, in vitro) highlighting new findings in the above areas, and short communications of preliminary but significant experimental results. In addition, experts in the field will review the current diagnostic, therapeutic and experimental models in glioblastoma. Finally, manuscripts that address the key challenges in paediatric glioblastoma will be of interest.
