Liquid biopsy, cfDNA, and ctDNA: new technologies and clinical applications

This series intends to collect studies on latest developments in new technologies and clinical applications on liquid biopsy, cfDNA, and ctDNA. Discovery and validation of new biomarkers for diagnosis, therapy and prognosis for human diseases are welcome also.

Radiogenomic biomarkers

For this collection, guest edited by Dr. Jeon-Hor Chen (University of California, Irvine), we cordially invite manuscripts from different disciplines. High quality manuscripts related to disease diagnosis, prediction of treatment response, and assessment of disease risk and outcome are encouraged. Manuscripts outside of these topics which are within the scope of translational research are also welcome.

CAHON: Stop hate crimes and racism

The Chinese American Hematologist and Oncologist Network (CAHON) has published an important and timely Editorial in the Journal of Hematology & Oncology. We are proud to stand with them in denouncing in the strongest terms all forms of discrimination and crimes against any racial/ethnic group, including Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and to call on our readers to pursue racial equality and tolerance in the USA and beyond.
