Phenotyping tumour heterogeneity

This issue highlights the analysis of tumour-heterogeneity patterns to stratify patient prognosis, growing paediatric implants, and advances in gastrointestinal motility sensing and in the discovery of peptides that rescue the misfolding of disease-associated proteins.

The cover illustrates patterns of vascular heterogeneity in cleared solid tumours identified through light-sheet microscopy (Article).
