This Special Issue of Cancers will consist of selected papers from the “Joint 8th Annual Meeting of the European Research Initiative for ALK Related Malignancies (ERIA) and the 2nd Annual meeting of the European Union Marie Curie European Training network, ALK as a target of translational science (ALKATRAS) (www.erialcl.net and www.alkatras.erialcl.net)”, taking place in Cambridge (UK), on 28–29 September 2017. ERIA was established in 2009 to bring together scientists and clinicians with a shared interest in ALK-related cancers and to provide a platform for the exchange of scientific data, reagents and informal peer review. Largely, this is mediated through annual meetings and whilst originally solely a European enterprise, now incorporates research groups from across the World. In 2016, 14 research groups, all members of ERIA were awarded an EU Marie Curie European training Network, ALKATRAS which has enabled further collaboration through a network of 15 PhD students recruited from around the world and representing the next generation of ERIA members. As such, this international conference represents the major event for the scientific community working on ALK-related cancers and promises to be an exciting and exhilarating meeting. Particular attention is given to trainees, whereby students are encouraged to present their early, unpublished data to facilitate collaboration and advancement in this important area of research. This Special Issue will cover new and novel areas of research pertaining to ALK-related malignancies presented at this conference and therefore will represent state-of-the-art and up-to-date coverage of progress.
