Special Issue "Gastric Cancer Research: From Basic Science to the Clinic"
A special issue of Biomedicines (ISSN 2227-9059).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
This Special Issue will focus on understanding the pathophysiology and molecular mechanisms that regulate gastric carcinogenesis and the tools that have been used in the past and are currently available for studying them both in vitro and in vivo. In particular, we will pay attention to the relevance and difference between mouse models and human pathogenesis in the gastric research field. This issue could include reviews, opinions, or short articles from experts in this research field, and cover broad topics such as important histopathological changes and/or key molecular pathways/factors during human and mouse gastric carcinogenesis, the roles of gastric stem cells and their niche during cancer development, the cellular origin of gastric cancers, the tumor microenvironment in gastric cancers, advances in cell lines and primary organoids for gastric research, epidemiological or endoscopic data analysis, and so on. We hope that the works in this issue will be helpful for solving unanswered questions in the clinic, and advancing future basic and clinical studies.

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. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
