About the book

Recently, there is growing awareness of the importance of identifying conditions that can contribute to translational cancer research. Translational research moves in a bidirectional manner from one type of research to another; from basic research to patient-oriented research, to population-based research, and involves collaboration among scientists from multiple disciplines. A need for performance improvement is also a priority in order to reduce the time taken to translate successful innovations from the laboratory into the clinic, and to deliver observations made in clinical studies back to the laboratory for further investigation or for new biology discoveries. Since translational research established itself as a bridge between basic research and clinical practice, its application spread beyond cancer to disease in general.
This book will include topics of epidemiology, biomarkers, tumor markers, disease prevalence, treatment outcomes, imaging, radiation therapy metastases, systemic chemotherapy of HCC, OSCC and cancer Cervix.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
