Plasma Processes and Polymers
(First paragraph) This issue of Plasma Processes and Polymers is the third in a series on the applications of low temperature plasma (LTP) against cancer, or “plasma oncology.” The papers in this issue are inspired from the talks given at the third International Workshop on Plasma for Cancer Treatment (IWPCT) which took place on April 11–12, 2016 in Washington, DC, USA. IWPCT is an international workshop that was created in 2014 as a venue to share cutting edge plasma oncology research. The first IWPCT was held in Washington DC, under the co-chairmanship of Prof. Mounir Laroussi (Old Dominion University) and Prof. Michael Keidar (George Washington University). The second workshop, IWPCT-2, was held in March 2015 in Nagoya, Japan under the chairmanship of Prof. Masaru Hori (Nagoya University). As mentioned above, IWPCT-3 was held again in Washington DC in 2016 under the co-chairmanship of Dr. Jerome Canady (Jerome Canady Research Institute) and Dr. Jonathan Sherman (George Washington University).
