Human exposure to nanomaterials is not restricted to a specific group of individuals, but affects the entire population because nanoparticles are present in the environment, integrated in food and consumer products, and present in the workplace. Depending on the type of exposure (dermal, respiratory, oral, intravenous, etc.) physicochemical properties of the particles, including protein corona formation and particle concentrations, that reach viable cells, differ. Particle characterization in the respective biological fluids, relevant exposure conditions, and cellular models and appropriate readout parameters are, therefore, of key importance for the physiological relevance of cytotoxicity testing.
This Special Issue focuses on the adverse cellular effects of nanoparticles, including particle changes in biological fluids, permeation across barriers, cellular interaction, cell uptake and mechanisms of cellular action in conventional and advanced culture models.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
