I am delighted to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences titled "Nanomaterials for Cancer Diagnostics and Therapy".
Despite significant advancements in medical science, cancer remains one of the world's deadliest diseases. Nanotechnology has made significant contributions to the cancer fight over the last two decades. Nanomaterials, in particular, have emerged as a promising method for improving the efficacy and lowering systemic toxicity of traditional chemotherapeutics. Nanomaterials are at the forefront of the development of new modes of cancer therapy and diagnosis due to their outstanding properties, including cancer immunotherapy, cancer vaccines, and so on.
The multidisciplinary topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the design, synthesis, and characterization of different types of nanomaterials as drugs, siRNA, etc. delivery systems for cancer therapy and diagnosis. Development and characterization of functional nanomaterials activated by external excitations such as near-infrared light, X-ray, ultrasound, and magnetic fields, as well as translational applications of nanomaterials to preclinical and clinical trials for cancer therapy, are also encouraged. Authors are kindly invited to submit original papers, communications, and reviews.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Ewa Olȩdzka
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.
