This Special Issue delves into the functional properties and applications of nanomaterials in medical research, particularly their applications in molecular, cellular, and biological studies. Nanomaterials, due to their size, unique physical and chemical properties, have opened up new possibilities for medical applications, including drug delivery, imaging, and cancer therapy. This Issue contains articles describing various types of nanomaterials and their functional properties, such as their ability to pass through cell membranes, target specific cell types, and modulate gene expression.
Additionally, the use of nanomaterials in molecular diagnostics and monitoring has received extensive attention in recent years. Nanoparticles can be designed and synthesized to detect biomolecules, including nucleic acids and proteins, and to provide information on disease progression at the molecular level.
Furthermore, nanomaterials have great potential in cellular engineering and regeneration. They can be employed to stimulate cell growth, modulate cell behavior, and promote cellular regeneration, which can provide new methods for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This Issue also highlights the challenges associated with the use of nanomaterials in medical research, such as potential toxicity and environmental impact, and emphasized the need for continued efforts to optimize the functionality and safety of nanomaterials. Overall, this Issue shows how nanomaterials are revolutionizing medical research and providing new strategies for understanding and treating diseases at the molecular and cellular levels.

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.
