The journal is sponsored by Chinese Anti-Cancer Association (CACA) and American Chinese Medical Association (ACMA). CACA was established in 1984. The vision of CACA is to be the leading non-governmental organization devoted to increase the survival rate, decrease the incidence and mortality rate of cancer, and improve the cancer control in China and the world. The mission of CACA is to contribute to the prevention and treatment of cancer via organizing, mobilizing and supporting clinical, scientific and technological professionals in the field of oncology.
ACMA was established in 1998. ACMA aims to be a premier American-Chinese academic medical organization. The mission of ACMA is to combine the power of Eastern and Western Medicine to improve health for all, promote healthcare delivery, medical education and training, and community service, bridge the gap between medical research and clinical practice, and function as a bridge for healthcare professionals between US and China.
The journal covers innovative basic, clinical and translational cancer research studies that bridge the laboratory and the clinic. Cancer Translational Medicine is especially interested in cancer risk assessment, cellular and molecular characterization, prevention, detection, diagnosis and experimental therapeutics in the field of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and biotherapy (immune-therapy, gene-therapy, target-therapy, stem-cell-therapy and so on). Examples of content include:
- Translational, clinical, preventative, and epidemiologic cancer research
- Molecular and cellular level researches that reveal novel mechanistic insight into pathways and processes linked to cancer risk, development, and/or progression
- New molecular mechanisms and interactions that support cancer phenotypes
- An incisive rationale that could interest a broad audience
- A generalizable conclusion with potentially broad impact
Potential Audience: Researchers focus on basic and translational cancer study, physician scientists, students, funding agencies, business developers
