Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous development of smart nanomaterials and nanotechnology in recent decades enabled significant progress in the use of biocompatible multifunctional nanoparticles (NPs) in advanced drug delivery, imaging, and biosensing for the treatment of various illnesses, including cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases. However, NPs are still at the early stages of clinical translation, with many challenges remaining regarding various unmet medical needs. Advances in NP design and fabrication are, therefore, very promising in the attempt ot make decisive breakthrough in the state-of-the-art in nanomedicine and precision medicine, which is crucial to achieving a controlled mechanism of drug administration and delivery, a convenient crossing of physiological barriers, and enhanced therapeutic efficacy. This Special Issue will focus on the recent and most promising approaches to the fabrication of advanced nanomedicines. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to: smart, stimuli-responsive nanomaterials for advanced drug delivery and theranostics; bioinspired chemistry and peptidomimetic approaches to nanomedicine; mechanisms of action of nanoparticles in the treatment of various diseases, including cancer, wound healing, CNS disorders, infections, and others; versatile nanoparticles for multimodal theranostic platforms; nanomedicine and nanotoxicity; sustainable multidisciplinary strategies for nanoparticle synthesis, characterization, and their applications with regard to nanomedicine.

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.
