Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Personalized medicine means different things to different researchers, but we can all agree that this is an exciting time to be engaged in the field. Whether you are interested in predicting what complex diseases a person is likely to develop as they age, designing the most appropriate therapeutic interventions tailored to the patient, or expanding diagnostic yields for congenital abnormalities, genomics has an increasingly important role to play.
Genomics in this context also refers to an ever-expanding set of methods and concepts. It includes polygenic risk scores; integrative multiomic strategies such as transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, and single-cell genomics starting with basic research and working toward personalized evaluations. This Special Issue of the Journal or Personalized Medicine invites submissions describing novel bioinformatics methods, empirical studies of rare or common diseases, experimental systems using, for example, organoids and primary cell lines, and research addressing variability in response to therapeutic intervention. Conceptual pieces considering practical and ethical issues with the implementation of genomics in personalized medicine are also welcome.
If you are unsure whether your study fits this outline, let us know. We look forward to considering your research for publication in JPM.

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. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
