About this Research Topic
Hematologic malignancies are at the forefront of the molecular revolution. Novel tools for diagnosis, prognosis and targeted therapies are changing the landscape of how physicians and scientists tackle these tumors. Given the diversity of these tools, which can range from image-based analysis to epigenetics and protein-based studies, the most clinically interesting ones may not be easily found in one publication.
This call for papers will emphasize the need for new ways of analyzing clinically relevant issues in malignant hematology. Tools may not themselves be newly introduced but the way in which they have been employed has given new perspective on how to diagnose and treat these tumors. Our goal is to find connecting themes in these approaches and the way that such tools move our field forward. Articles can be original research, focused reviews of the literature, or case series with short reviews.
