Leukemia (leukaemia- British spelling) is a malignancy of the blood originating from immature leukocytes (lymphoid and myeloid). It is the most common form of childhood cancer (~1/3 of cases) and accounts for >44,000 new diagnoses and >22,000 mortalities annually in the US alone. Recent advances in both laboratory and clinic continue to improve the outcome for patients. This special edition of Cancers gives an opportunity to describe recent original research in the field of leukemia, the development or application of new platforms or insights, and/or reviews of the field. We are particularly interested in genomics, leukemia stem cell research, novel therapeutics, epidemiological studies and new biomarker studies. If you would like to discuss an idea for a paper before committing please contact the guest editor.
