Cancer occurs when a group of diseases that involve abnormal cell growth with a potential of spreading throughout the body emerge. That is why scientists all over the globe came up with Oncology. Oncology is a branch of science that conducts thorough research on cancer and its causative agents. Oncology is basically a wide term that can be divided into 3 subdivisions namely; surgical oncology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology.In oncology, the medical expert commonly referred to as an oncologist, carries out intensive research on the prevention, diagnosis, and cure of cancerous cells. Oncology basically involves numerous tests that try to study the abnormal growth and ways to deal with it. MRI, Tumour markers, CT Scans and TNM staging are some of the significant test carried out in the process of studying cancer.
This is where Oncortarget comes in to help patients and every other person gain more knowledge and insight about this menace, cancer.

Gudkov, for instance, is a prominent researcher in the field of cancer who holds both a Ph.D. and a Doctorate in Science. Andrei V. Gudkov is currently working at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute. At Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Andrei Gudkov is responsible for building and translating research strengths of the Cell Stress Biology Program. This simply entails research on DNA damage and repair, photodynamic therapy and immune modulation, among others.Oncortarget has been gaining popularity over the few years of its existence and Oncortarget’s team attributes this to the numerous peer reviews. Oncortarget team says that multiple peer review that is insightful and constructive has made the journal’s authors increase the impact of their research.
