Special Issue "Novel Insights into Molecular Biology of Urological Cancers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2022.
Interests: renal cell carcinoma; prostate cancer; bladder cancer; metabolomics; biomarkers
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Kidney, prostate, and bladder cancers are among the ten leading tumor types for the new estimated cancer cases in males, according to the American Cancer Society.
In recent years, many studies have provided novel insights into the molecular mechanisms involved in urological tumor pathogenesis, leading to the identification of potential biomarkers for early diagnosis, risk assessment, and outcome prediction. Moreover, the introduction of high-throughput technologies has led to a greater understanding of the pathways underlying the development and progression of these tumors and the identification of novel potential therapeutic targets. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will be dedicated to the application of different omics approaches for understanding the perturbations of biological systems occurring in the pathogenesis of the genitourinary system.

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 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. 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
