Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The design and application of new molecular probes is essential for the development of a more specific and selective diagnosis by molecular imaging. The development of new chemical strategies for the labeling of (bio)molecules with radioactive isotopes, the generation of new molecules with optical properties, and the advance of nanotechnology in the creation of new nanoparticles with beneficial physical properties for different imaging techniques have opened a new avenue in the development of non-invasive tools capable of early and specific detection of pathologies as diverse as cancer, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, and infectious diseases.

In the Special Issue "Molecular Probe: Recent Research and Future Challenges", we welcome your contributions in the form of original research and review articles on all aspects of molecular probes and their biological application through biomedical imaging, as well as articles examining novel chemical methodologies in radioactive or optical labeling, as well as the synthesis of nanoparticles with fluorescent, magnetic or radioactive properties.

Dr. Beatriz Salinas Rodríguez
Guest Editor

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
