  • Cancer progression and dissemination through lymphatics—metastasis;
  • Lymphocytes as microenvironment;

  • Lymphatic vessels and lymph, the clear fluid;
  • The biology and development of lymphocytes;
  • Lymphoid tissues;

We encourage scientists to publish their research articles and concepts that revolve around above topics. There is no restriction on the maximum length of papers. Large electronic files, software, movies, etc. that cannot be published in the main paper can be posted as supplementary material. Full experimental and/or methodological details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. We also accept proposals for review articles that are not part of Special Issues and interesting images with detailed legends and reference citations.
