Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanoparticles have a special place among nanotechnologies as they have shown great potential for bringing countless benefits compared to their macroscaled counterparts. Thus, in recent years, there has been a steadily growing interest in the utilization of nanoparticles in various biomedical applications, including targeted drug and gene delivery, bioimaging, biosensing, cancer therapy through hyperthermia or photoablation, theranostics, and cell labeling.

However, most applications require additional organic or bioactive molecules for fulfilling the desired purposes, enhancing biocompatibility and avoiding immune responses from the organism, and inducing supplementary effects, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, or anti-cancer. Therefore, nanoparticles mostly function as carriers for that will specifically target the desired area and release various biomolecules. In this manner, recent years have witnessed tremendous advancements in the development of efficient methods for encapsulating or attaching these biomolecules at the nanoparticle level.

Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to gather all the information and contributions from recent years concerning the precise interactions of nanoparticles with biomolecules in the process of developing complex systems. Specifically, submitted papers should focus on newly emerged methods for functionalizing nanoparticles with specific biomolecules and their associated applications, as well as on the mechanistic perspectives regarding their interactions.

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.
