               In conclusion, a lack of response or resistance to anti-cancer therapies, whichever you prefer to call it,
               is the key obstacle that needs to be overcome to improve therapy outcomes in patients diagnosed with
               advanced disease who depend on systemic therapies. You will see from the conference abstracts and the
               contributions to this Special Issue that a wide spectrum of aspects of response and resistance in cancer
               were covered at the conference. We would like to thank all the contributors to this Special Issue and hope
               that you, the reader, will find the topic and content both interesting and useful. Finally, we encourage you
               to join us at the follow-up 2nd BACR Conference on Response and Resistance in Cancer Therapy, which is
               planned for 15th to 17th June 2020 at the University of Kent in Canterbury, UK.
