As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Thematic Series Published in 2020: Non-coding RNAs and RNA modifiers in cancer progression and cancer cells resistance to therapies
There is increasing evidence that non-coding RNAs play a major role in epigenetic regulation. This article collection focuses on understanding the mechanisms of non-coding RNA, describing insights into the biogenesis and activity of non-coding RNAs, their interaction with chromatin, and novel methods for analysis and manipulation of RNA-mediated regulation.

Aims and scope
Molecular Cancer is an open access, peer-reviewed journal interested in attracting high-quality original research and reviews that present or highlight significant advances in all areas of cancer and related biomedical science.
In this review, Sahebkar et al. summarize the current knowledge on the contribution of the NLRP3 inflammasome on potential cancer promotion and therapy.
Thematic Series Published in 2019: Microvesicles and Tumor Microenvironment in Cancer Development and Resistance to Therapies
This series of review articles aims to highlight significant findings and advances in our understanding of the role of the TME in cancer biology. The tumor microenvironment (TME) has an effect on tumor development, growth, and resistance to therapy. Continuous interactions and exchanges between tumor cells and the TME are involved in angiogenesis, tumor genetic diversity, immune escape, and metastasis.
