Owing to their exclusive advantages originating from the nanometer size, nanoparticles and nanostructures have gained increasing interest as emerging materials that are essential for advances in biomedicine. Polymers have provided many advantages over other metals and ceramics in biomedical applications, such as mild synthetic condition, structural diversity, flexibility, and biocompatibility. Advances in polymer nanotechnologies have allowed the design and synthesis of various polymer nanomaterials for biomedical applications as well as the study of their biological behavior in vitro and in vivo. The aim of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality research papers and reviews focusing on the design, synthesis, and applications of nanoparticulate and nanostructured polymers in various biomedical applications. Research topics include but are not limited to the following:
- In vitro/in vivo imaging/sensing
- DNA/RNA delivery
- Drug carriers
- Coating and surface functionalization
- Small molecules versus polymers in biomedical applications

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.
