About the collection

This Collection is seeking articles that focus on the biology of brain metastases, with an emphasis on the molecular characteristics of brain metastases, biomarkers that indicate response and resistance to different therapies, the development of preclinical models, and an examination of the unique tumor immune microenvironment of the brain. We also welcome articles that explore new and innovative therapeutic targets or treatment methods, particularly in preclinical models of brain metastases. Additionally, we are interested in studies that examine human tissue samples from patients with brain metastases, taken especially before and after therapy.

Overall, this Collection aims to bring together the latest research on brain metastases biology to inform the scientific community and ultimately lead to improved treatment options for patients.

There are currently no articles in this collection.
