This Special Issue is the second volume of our previous Special Issue, “Cell and Molecular Biology of Thyroid Disorders”. The proper function of the thyroid gland and its cells is of the highest importance for our health. Very often, an iodine deficiency causes a malfunction of the thyroid and plays a role in carcinogenesis. Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism have detrimental effects on our bodies.
The main topic of this Special Issue is the cell and molecular biology of thyroid disorders. There has been exciting progress in understanding the molecular mechanisms of thyroid diseases.
A special focus of volume 2 will be thyroid cancer. Molecular alterations represent novel diagnostic and prognostic molecular markers and therapeutic targets for thyroid cancer. Specific biomarkers and cancer-specific changes in gene expression patterns and alterations of the protein content have been identified. Original studies on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy of thyroid cancer, including genetics, proteomics, metabolomics, molecular, and cell biology, are welcome.
It will also cover clinical studies, providing novel mechanistic insights into the underlying pathogenesis or new aspects that may impact clinical therapy, as well as recent study results in order to review the current status of new therapy options in thyroid cancer.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
