Manuscripts in the volume explore cancer as an individualized problem and address the impact of recent advances in cancer biology, genetics, tumor profiling, and medical technology in the personalization of cancer predisposition, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and therapy development. The main goal of the volume is to foster dialogue among basic and clinical scientists working toward the personalization of cancer medicine and to encourage multidisciplinary collaborations. Furthermore, the experiences shared from different areas of individualized oncology will help improve the global concept of the personalized cancer care, and identify commonalities, pitfalls, and steps forward.
