Diabetes increases the risk of premature mortality and morbidity as a result of multisystem complications during the lifelong disease course. Due to the epidemic proportion that diabetes is assuming, this dramatic load is very likely to further surge over the next few decades, thus greatly contributing to an increase in economic, social and human costs worldwide. To tackle such a burden, the development of precision medicine approaches to predict the most high-risk patients to be targeted with the most aggressive, expensive and burdensome prevention strategies is mandatory.
The use of “omics” information leading to the discovery of novel biomarkers and their integration in prediction models that incorporate data from accurate phenotyping would help clinicians to stratify patients’ individual risk in order to choose the best follow-up and treatment strategies so as to maximize their effectiveness and minimize their costs.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine aims to highlight some of the latest studies in the field of “omics”, in the application of precision medicine for people with diabetes and coincidentally in addressing pathogenic pathways that are either unknown or poorly understood and that can eventually become the target of new treatments.

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.
