Our mission is to make scientific results rapidly and widely available. To maximize the impact of research via insightful review. To allow exceptional discoveries to be shared quickly. To eliminate the border between specialties. To link different fields of biomedical science. To foster applications of basic and clinical science to fight disease.
Under the leadership of the most prominent scientists, the journal helps all researchers contribute to the progress of science. Life without disease is our ultimate goal.
The success of Oncotarget has prompted us to launch sections beyond oncology.
The term "oncotarget" encompasses all molecules, pathways, and cellular functions common in cancer and aging, neurodegeneration and atherosclerosis, lymphocytes and neurons, cancer cells and microbes.
Oncotarget is launching sections on:
- Pathology beyond oncology
- Immunology and Microbiology
- Autophagy and Cell Death
