Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will comprise selected papers from the proceedings of the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Cancers: New Targets for Cancer Therapies (IECC 2023) 16-30 March 2023, held on sciforum.net, an online platform for hosting scholarly e-conferences and discussion groups.

The focus of this conference is the translation of recent discoveries into new therapeutic targets for cancer therapies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Translational cancer genomics and epigenomics;
  • Emerging immunotherapy targets;
  • Overcoming therapeutic hurdles in resistance and undruggable proteins.

There will be five specific sessions, each with an invited keynote speaker and chair and short proffered talks on the following:

Session 1: Genome-wide Approaches for Target Identification.

Session 2: Targeting Metastasis.

Session 3: Novel Immunotherapy Targets.

Session 4: Novel Approaches for ‘Undruggable’ Targets.

Session 5: Overcoming Therapeutic Resistance.

Selected papers that attract the most interest on the web or that provide a particularly innovative contribution will be selected for publication. These papers will be subjected to peer review and published with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications. We hope that this Conference Series will continue to grow in acceptance and recognition among potential participants, contributors, experts who want to disseminate their latest findings, and readers who seek information on new targets for cancer therapies.

Dr. Carlos S. Moreno
Guest Editor
