Cancer remains the second leading cause of death worldwide. Although there are many successful examples of art-science collaborations in various disciplines, the number of art-science initiatives directed toward cancer research is very small. The focus of this special section is to investigate whether combining principles of art, science and technology with that of cancer biology can advance cancer research. To address this issue, we seek submissions related to innovative, cutting-edge topics that combine scientific methodologies with artistic practices. We are specifically interested in studies that lead to establishing new paradigms in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of and eventual cure for cancer, providing novel perspectives for oncologists beyond what has been revealed by biological research alone.
