Message From the Surgical Oncology Insight Editor-in-Chief
I am truly honored and privileged to serve as Editor-in-Chief of Surgical Oncology Insight. We have assembled an incredible Editorial Board consisting of disease experts and thought leaders from all over the world, capitalizing on our global partnerships through the Society of Surgical Oncology. Utilizing the power of this outreach, we aim to really make this journal a global effort, highlighting novel techniques employed in various countries around the world, emphasizing the multi-disciplinary approach to disease, and focusing on the clinical applications of clinical trials conducted within each disease space. Further emphasis on global oncology, education, translational science, and palliative care complete the comprehensive approach to caring for the patient with cancer. The membership of the Society of Surgical Oncology and all its Global Partners are the foundation of this journal, which will reach readers worldwide, and will be greatly amplified by the open access format. I hope you will join me in helping to make Surgical Oncology Insight a success!
