The technological advancement in developing polymer-metal-carbon-based materials with excellent physio-chemical characteristics offers newer insight into the fabrication and designing of newer biosensor devices for a range of applications, especially biomedical use. Numerous materials, mainly polymers (polymeric nanoparticles, polymeric microneedle, poly lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, chitosan, gelatin, starch, polyvinyl alcohol, etc.), metal (Cu, Zn, Ni, Ag, and Au, etc.), and carbon (carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, graphene, and fullerenes, etc.) has been effectively used in a different application. Moreover, the applicability of these materials increased with the combination of two or three other materials. Through the process of combination, we can easily tune the characteristics of the materials and easily create designs based on the desired application. The polymer-metal-carbon-based emerging materials might be a promising candidate for highly sensitive and selective biosensors. With the help of nanomaterials, researchers continue developing highly selective and sensitive biosensors for biomedical and environmental applications.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the advancements in the development of functional nanomaterials-based biosensors and their applications in the biomedical field. Original research papers and reviews focused on polymers, metals, and carbon-based biosensors for biomedical and environmental remediation applications will be considered for publication.

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. Biosensors 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.
