The current era of drug resistance has obliged researchers to shift the paradigm of drug development towards nanotechnological innovations. Nano-innovations have been explored to design, fabricate and synthesize nanoparticles for different biomedical applications. Interestingly, during the last decade, nanoparticles have been applied to confront various patho-aspects of infectious as well as non-infectious diseases. They have acted as an excellent delivery vehicle for different drug moeity without compromising their inherent therapeutic potential. In addition to acting as delivery vehicles, some nanoparticles have provided add-on advantages to synergize or maximize the therapeutic effect of the carried drug. Nano-researchers have also applied innovative approaches to perform the synthesis and subsequent modification of inorganic or organic nanoparticles by green chemistry/ chemicals. Green synthesis approaches are preferred in order to avoid the probability of imperceptible alterations in results due to residual chemicals. However, everything has its pros and cons: green synthesis approaches, specifically using herbal extracts, present a dilemma for the researchers, as they must define the exact compounds/enzymes involved in the synthesis and fabrication due to plethora of compounds in a single extract. Scientists have worked diligently to innovate the methods of synthesis and fabrication of nanoparticles to provide some effective nano-therapy or nano-diagnostic tools for the community. Still, the fate and toxicity aspects are the underexplored part for effective nanoparticles applications. The present Special Issue will cover original review and research articles pertinent to novel methods of nanoparticles synthesis and fabrication for their 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
