Special Issue "Bioluminescent Biosensors for Biomedical Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2023) | Viewed by 7648
I am pleased to invite contributions to this Special Issue covering bioluminescence-based biosensors in all medical fields. Their high sensitivity, low background, and broad linear range of detection make bioluminescent biosensors valuable tools for different biomedical purposes, ranging from the detection of metabolites in biological fluids to evaluating the progression of diseases at the molecular level. This has been apparent in the volume of papers in the more recent success of many commercial devices.
Bioluminescence-based biosensors are exceptionally diverse. They attract interest and contributions from physicists, chemists and biologists, as well as electrical, mechanical, chemical, and biomedical engineers, with wide applications in biomedicine. Various community attitudes and numerous challenges emerge from different training, terminology, standards and opportunities for data. Nonetheless, we may achieve great success if we can overcome these differences and communicate effectively.
I invite contributions to this Special Issue from as broad a community as possible. The list of potential topics is vast, but we are particularly interested in works that elucidate how some biological phenomena are leveraged by bioluminescent biosensors to improve diagnostic applications, drug screening and bioimaging approaches.
I invite the submission of scientifically sound work that is presented in clear, concise, and simple writing. The work should be thoughtfully analyzed and written for the biological and biomedical communities.
Prof. Dr. Saman Hosseinkhani
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.
