Combining nanoparticles and biomolecules into hybrid structures (conjugates) provides powerful tools for managing delivery, recognition, and detection processes, applicable both in vitro and in vivo. Updating in research and gaining new knowledge about nanoparticles as a career for bioreceptor molecules is necessary due to significant progress in the synthesis of new types of nanoparticles, the extension of used bioreceptor molecules, and innovative tools for high-throughput studies at a molecular level. Accordingly, the priority focus of our special issue is new nanoparticles, biomolecules, and approaches for their characterization.
In this Special Issue, we will consider the progress towards
- obtaining nanoparticles used as carriers for bioreceptor molecules;
- characterization and improving the properties of conjugates of nanoparticles with antibodies, aptamers, nucleic acids, enzymes, and other biomolecules;
- theoretical and experimental studies of composition - property correlations for the nanoparticle–bioreceptor conjugates;
- application of the nanoparticle–bioreceptor conjugates in diagnostics, delivery, and therapy.
This Special Issue aims at expanding the knowledge on obtaining, characterization, and applications for nanoparticles–bioreceptor conjugates. Experimental studies in biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, and biomedicine, review articles, and clinical studies are all welcome for consideration.

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.
