With the increasing age of the population throughout the world, aging-associated diseases are becoming common. Some of these diseases/disorders include obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, coronary heart disease, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), gastrointestinal disorders such as lack of appetite, inflammatory bowel disease, and constipation, hepatic disorders (due to alcoholism and previous viral diseases such as HBV and HCV), Alzheimer’s disease, depression, dementia, sarcopenia, osteoporosis, immunodeficiency, autoimmune disorders, and cancer. It is known that some of these diseases do occur in the young, but, when they occur in the elderly, they are more difficult to manage due to other associated health issues, such as diabetes mellitus, obesity, osteoporosis, and immunodeficiency. Aging is also associated with reduced wound healing, atherosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease, and decreased ability to fight infections. As the population is aging and with many elderly people actively working, it is essential that the elderly remain healthy, active, and contribute to the economy. In view of this, understanding the pathobiology of aging-associated diseases/disorders is important for the development of newer therapeutic interventions.
In this Special Issue devoted to age-related diseases, we are expecting contributions from scientists, physicians, and others on all aspects of aging. We are particularly interested in receiving manuscripts that describe the molecular events that occur in various age-related diseases/disorders and their potential therapeutic applications. Thus, we wish to bridge the gap between the lab and the clinic and, at the same time, understand the molecular events in various diseases that may also have relevance when those diseases occur in the younger population.

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. Biomolecules 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 2700 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.
