Thyroid hormones control the activity of several organs, and the functioning of the thyroid follicular cells is important for the health of the entire organism. Thyroid diseases and cancer are among the most frequent endocrine disorders and malignant diseases. Their incidence is continuously increasing worldwide, evidencing the necessity of continuous research in the field. The pathways injured in thyroid follicular cells and their disease specificity needs further investigation. Genetic and environmental factors contribute to damaging the thyroid follicular cells, and their interplay is still poorly characterized. The topic of this Special Issue is the characterization of thyroid disorders/cancers and of the promoting factors at follicular cell level in terms of morphological/functional and molecular changes. Studies using animal or cell culture models to investigate molecular mechanisms of thyroid diseases/cancers based on systems biology approaches will be published, which will lead to the characterization of molecular alterations representing novel diagnostic and prognostic molecular markers and therapeutic targets for thyroid disease/cancer. Researchers are encouraged to publish their work in this field, both with respect to endocrine thyroid diseases and thyroid carcinomas, including original articles or systematic reviews.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
