Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of Bio-optics is interdisciplinary in nature and seamlessly intertwines concepts of fundamental biological systems together with electrical, electronical, and computational engineering. With the advent of precision tools and technologies to probe the molecular state of cells and tissues, a rising need to extend the scope of bio-imaging has emerged in the modern era. This has been met with steady innovation in optical instrumentation and the development of relevant in silico tools to enhance quantitative imaging and signal-sensing capabilities with focused applications in basic biological research, medical diagnostics, and therapy. A key goal that yet remains is to develop intuitive and automated optical systems that allow for precise detection and control which would eventually enable a desired profound impact at the physiological level. This is expected to also widen the spatiotemporal resolution needed to image or modulate molecular discrepancies in a physiological context. In this Special Issue of Bioengineering, we cover the latest concepts, designs, and inventions pertaining to super-resolution microscopy, nanobio-optics, molecular probes, optical biosensors, and photobiomodulation. This Special Issue aims to highlight some of the most engaging research in biophotonics and photobiomodulation encompassing diverse experimental and therapeutic paradigms.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
