Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is the continuation of our previous Special Issue "Microenvironment in Cancer Progression and Metastases: Crosstalk between Cancer Cells and Microenvironment".

Over the last decades evidence has accumulated showing that crosstalk between cancer cells and the microenvironment plays an important role in tumor initiation, progression, and metastatasis. Novel targeted treatments and immune therapies have emerged specifically focusing on altering the interaction between tumor cells stroma, immune cells, and vasculature. In the current series, we invite papers dealing with the basic research, translational research, and clinical studies on the interaction between the tumor cells and their microenvironment.
