Animal models are essential tools in radiotherapy research that have played critical roles in developing our understanding of tumour and normal tissue response. With recent advances in small animal irradiation techniques, preclinical imaging and genome editing, animal models continue to evolve to better recapitulate radiation response in humans. These developments are allowing previously unimaginable experimental approaches to be used in the laboratory, and have much potential towards the development of biologically optimized treatment strategies.
This special issue aims to highlight the state-of-the-art in modeling radiotherapy response in animal models, and to demonstrate the broad range of experimental approaches currently being explored. Importantly, we also aim to provide a critical discussion on the translational relevance of animal models and their potential to drive innovations in the clinic.
We are soliciting original research articles and current reviews dedicated to the development and application of animal models in radiotherapy research.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
