Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
For a long time, the central nervous system (CNS) was described as an immune-privileged organ devoid of contact with the immune compartment in homeostatic conditions. This paradigm was in part explained by the presence of CNS barriers. Nowadays, we know that peripheral immune cells patrol the CNS in both patients and healthy individuals. During disease, extensive intricate interactions occur between leukocytes and CNS resident cells. Further understanding these direct and indirect communications between the cells could help, on one hand, prevent deleterious neuroinflammation, while, on the other hand, could help promote repair mechanisms and restore homeostasis.
The aim of this Special Issue of the journal Biomolecules is to highlight new or recently described neuroimmune cell interactions and biological processes involved during states of health and neurological diseases. Original research manuscripts, reviews and communications are invited.

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.
