Cancer treatment has been revolutionized by recent unraveling and targeting of the interaction between tumors and the host immune system. Genome Medicine is pleased to announce a special issue on ‘Tumor immune microenvironment and immunotherapy’, guest edited by Zlatko Trajanoski of Medical University of Innsbruck and Noel de Miranda of Leiden University Medical Center. The issue captures recent insights using genomic approaches toward characterizing the immune system in the tumor microenvironment, immunotherapeutic targeting, as well as functional – and dysfunctional – anti-tumor immune responses, highlighting the clinical applications of these advances.
