Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit high-quality and relevant manuscripts on research activities in pharmaceutical technology for this Special Issue entitled “The 20th Anniversary of Pharmaceuticals—Emerging Trends in Biopharmaceutical Area”. All research will be included in a book dedicated to the 20th anniversary of our journal. Manuscripts focusing on the therapeutic, diagnostic, prognostic and immunoprophylactic developments of important biological macromolecules built from amino acids, sugars, nucleic acids, comprising small basic units of which they are composed, and mimetics produced by chemical synthesis. Contributions focusing on biopharmaceutical applications of more complex entities, such as phages, viruses, exosomes and stem cells, among others, are also welcome. Also reports on structure and molecular interactions determinant for biopharmaceuticals bioactivity or pharmaceutical applications, e.g. by computational and NMR studies are also accepted.
