Advances in cancer research over the recent decades have been plentiful and often successful, with 5 year survival rates increasing almost uniformly across the board. The advent of new technologies has presented solutions for yesterday’s barriers to research, allowing us to leap forward in our ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat various cancers. Developments in omics studies has provided new insights into the underlying molecular basis of different cancers and their subtypes, greatly enhancing our understanding of the vast heterogeneity that exists. Progress in our ability to diagnose and detect early-stage cancers has resulted in numerous screening and prevention programs. Novel imaging technologies allow us to study and comprehend cancers with greater clarity than ever before. Although the field, as a whole, has experienced many successes, arduous challenges must be overcome in order to see continued success. The truth of the matter is cancer related deaths continue to rise in number worldwide, especially in lower- and middle-income countries. It is evident that there is still a lot of work to be done. This Frontiers in Oncology Special Issue marks the 1st edition of a collection of selected articles published in the journal over the course of the previous calendar year, highlighting ongoing research and advances being carried out in the different disciplines of cancer research.

Taking Northern Ireland as its primary case study, this book applies the burgeoning literature in memory studies to the primary question of transitional justice: how shall societies and individuals reckon with a traumatic past? Joseph Robinson argues that without understanding how memory shapes, moulds, and frames narratives of the past in the minds of communities and individuals, theorists and practitioners may not be able to fully appreciate the complex, emotive realities of transitional political landscapes. Drawing on interviews with what the author terms "memory curators," coupled with a robust analysis of secondary literature from a range of transitional cases, the book analyses how the bodies of the dead, the injured, and the traumatised are written into - or written out of - transitional justice. The author argues that scholars cannot appreciate the dynamism of transitional memory-space unless they first engage with the often silenced or marginalised voices whose memories remain trapped behind the antagonistic politics of fear and division. Ultimately challenging the imperative of national reconciliation, the author argues for a politics of public memory that incubates at multiple nodes of social production and can facilitate a vibrant, democratic debate over the ways in which a traumatic past can or should be remembered.

When he lifts his arms to point the camera at me, the shirt bunches around the muscles of his biceps and his shoulders. 'What's this about? Who sent you?' 'There's a simple message: back off.' The photograph has printed. He holds it up, shakes it dry and looks at it appraisingly. ?'Not bad,' he says, turning the photo so I can see it. I look at myself, smiling at the camera, reflexively. 'this is for you,' he says, giving it to me. 'Keep it handy, so you can show the plastic surgeon what you used to look like.'? When a rugby star, who began life on the city streets, is murdered in the arms of a beautiful celebrity, it seems to be an open and shut case of a drug deal gone wrong. But Anna Markunas, legal researcher for the prime suspect's defence team, begins to uncover a far more sinister truth - a truth that could destroy everything and everyone she cares about most. And could, ultimately, destroy her. 'A rollicking great thriller - a real page turner' Robyn Malcolm '[A} cracking thriller...the first in a series featuring Anna and her mates, and I'm looking forward to the second'?Kerre's Book Review
