Cellular metabolism in immune cells is a key factor for successful anti-tumour immune responses. Indeed, tumours have developed strategies to evade the immune response that involve the manipulation of the tumour microenvironment to disrupt cellular metabolism, and hence the anti-tumour functions, in tumour infiltrating lymphocytes. In recent years it has become clear that harnessing the immune system to target tumours has the potential to change the way cancer is treated and cured. Crucially, there is a developing understanding of the importance of immune cell metabolism for the success of such cancer immunotherapies. This special issue of Immunometabolism aims to provide a series of articles covering all aspects of how immunometabolism impacts upon cancer immunotherapy.

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.
All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.
Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
