Special Issue "Biosensing and Imaging for Neurodegenerative Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2024 | Viewed by 1624
Accurate diagnoses are crucial in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Increasing evidence has shown that specific biomarkers are helpful for the early detection, prognosis, and efficacy evaluation of neurodegenerative diseases. Highly sensitive sensing technologies (based on biomarkers derived from cerebrospinal fluid, blood, saliva, urine, or tissues and organs) can effectively measure and identify changes in clinically meaningful outcomes. The combination of biosensing with imaging will be more conducive to the accurate diagnosis of diseases and real-time monitoring of treatments. This Special Issue will provide the state of the art of portable sensors and their integration with new imaging methods in the field of neurodegenerative diseases, focusing on the screening of novel biomarkers derived from the periphery (especially blood, saliva, and urine), the exploration of dual-mode biosensors, and new applications of tissue-clearing for 3D imaging and in vivo multimodality imaging techniques.

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.
