CANCER BIOLOGY: Advances and Challenges

A special thematic issue meant to cover latest research work related to tumor-genesis, invasion, metastasis, genomic and epigenomic attributes of tumors, cancer as systemic disease, successful interventions in prevention, diagnosis, therapeutic, care and future scope for control of cancer.

The global population health status indicates the rapid increase in the incidence of cancer, the leading ailment responsible for high mortality rates. A surge in cancer cases has been observed due to various reasons such as lifestyle related behaviors, carcinogenic exposures, occupational hazards and genetic epidemiology. This makes cancer literacy and knowledge an important step against cancer. Taking the various issues into consideration, we need to define a roadmap towards effective programs for comprehensive cancer control and awareness. Cancer awareness makes early detection of cancer that further helps in the management and treatment. The awareness also paves a path towards prevention of cancer by living a healthy lifestyle. The aim of the conference is to understand the latest successful interventions in prevention, diagnosis, timely-accessed treatment, care and control of cancer. Now, the time is to unite and stand against the global cancer burden and to move towards the advancement of global cancer control that leaves no one behind.

The University of Delhi, Deshbandhu College ( https://www.deshbandhucollege.ac.in/) hosted a 3-day International Conference on “CANCER BIOLOGY: Advances & Challenges” https://sites.google.com/db.du.ac.in/health-2021 on 11-13 Nov 2021 with aim towards a global collaboration between scientists, research scholars and students working on various aspects of cancer biology from different research organizations, medical institutions and reputed Universities, to share their ideas and discuss the possible solutions. The selected full-length articles from speakers, participants and other scholars will be published in special thematic issue.

This issue will provide the information about recent research advances related to the cancer biology including the molecular advances and challenges. The goal of cancer research is to develop safe and effective methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, treat, and therapeutic the diseases. This aims to strengthen the action and impact of the cancer research on national, regional and international scales through its advancement which spans the full spectrum of cancer – from prevention and treatment to palliative care.

Biosensors for Detecting Imbalances of Life Systems: Role of Materials and Methods in Improved Outcome

Special issue on Biosensors: materials and methods
Lead 20 program

Any deviation or imbalance from homeostatic state of steady internal physical and chemical conditions in living systems, generally falls under category of disease. Chances of bringing them back to normalcy or closer to healthier state with therapeutic interventions are found to be more successful when they are applied at very early stage. Biosensing has emerged as a process to achieve early detection of deviations in such homeostatic states via evaluation of physiological, chemical, or biomolecular parameters in the subjects. The two main components on which efficiency of biosensors rely are materials used as platform technology and methods of detection used for the task. In this issue we will be assembling recent advancements in the field of Biosensors in terms of used materials and methods in achieving high sensitivity, specificity and predictability in form of original research.
