Special Issue Information
New biomarkers associated with different diseases are urgently needed to improve patient survival. Biomolecules allow for determining the optimal treatment, establishing a clinical diagnosis and enabling clinical prognosis in neurological, cardiovascular and infectious diseases, as well as in cancer. Highly promising strategies to detect specific biomarkers often rely on the design of specific biosensors; these techniques are expected to improve sensitivity, selectivity, reproducibility and response time. Clinical and non-clinical biosensors can be categorized into different types of detection (e.g., mechanical, chemical, optical or electrical). They use enzymes, cells, antibodies, DNA, nanoparticles or the pathogenic agent itself, such as bacteria or viruses, to enact their effects. This paves the way for a plethora of different applications, including the use of biosensors in diagnostic kits for SARS-CoV-2 detection. This Special Issue will explore the intersection between nanosciences, biology and medicine, presenting various research approaches to biosensors’ application in clinical diagnosis and care, including their fabrication, accompanying challenges and future trends in their development.

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. Biomedicines 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 2200 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.
