ecancermedicalscience is an open access cancer journal focused on under-resourced communities. In order to help reduce global inequalities in cancer care and treatment, we provide free access to all articles from the point of publication and we only charge authors who have specific funding to cover publication costs.
The journal considers articles on all aspects of research relating to cancer, including molecular biology, genetics, pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical reports, controlled trials (in particular if they are independent or publicly funded trials), health systems, cancer policy and regulatory aspects of cancer care.
Medicine is currently undergoing a huge change by focusing on the integrated diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease in individual patients involved in personalised medicine. The articles in this special issue highlight important aspects of the p-medicine project - 'p-medicine - from data sharing and integration via VPH (Virtual Physiological Human) models to personalised medicine', a 4-year Integrated Project funded by the European commission which aims to develop new tools, an IT infrastructure and VPH models to accelerate personalised medicine for the benefit of patients.Read the full editorial
