Extended life expectancy and essential changes in lifestyle have led to a continuous increase in cancer incidence in the past few decades with modern societies facing a major challenge. In a continuous exchange between excellent basic research as a driving force, interdisciplinary research approaches have unraveled mechanisms of cancer development and progression funneling into innovative translational activities from the bench to bedside.

The conference FRONTIERS in CANCER RESEARCH 2018 provides an overview of the most exciting fields of current, interdisciplinary cancer research. Internationally leading researchers will present their recent work in the fields of

• Stem cells and cancer
