It has been estimated that by 2030 half of all global deaths will be from cancer. As we age, our risk of cancer increases and thus, as the global population ages, the prevalence of disease will increase. Severe premature ageing syndromes give us some insight into the molecular pathways governing both the ageing process and cancer risk; however, much remains to be discovered. This special issue focuses on novel advances in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie the cancer and ageing processes.
