Special Issue in Nanomaterials: Advances in Pharmaceutical Applications of Lipid-Based Nanoparticles
This Special Issue focuses on advanced self-assembled nanostructures inspired by the supramolecular organizations of biomolecules in living systems and by the formation of protein macromolecular complexes in cellular membranes and subcellular compartments. All kinds of functional self-assembled nanostructures will be considered including organized protein assemblies, lipid/protein supramolecular nanoarchitectures, dynamic nanostructures formed by cell penetrating peptides and other biomolecules, self-assembled nanostructures for nanomedicine applications, biomimetic nanostructures, and synthetic assemblies for multimodal theranostic imaging, etc. Reports involving characterization techniques at the nanoscale, such as cryo-transmission electron microscopy (cryoTEM) and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy imaging, will be of particular interest.

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. Molecules 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 2700 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.
