Modern medicine is going through an extremely important moment in its evolution in relation to the disease–drug–patient axis, gradually progressing from pure drug development, which initiates from the need to prevent or treat certain diseases, to the expansion of coherent therapeutic strategies which are personalized for each individual, in recognition of the fact that each patient is a distinct physio-pathological case. Remarkable advances in recent decades in the prevention strategies, diagnostic procedures and available treatments have paved the way to major improvements in patient care. Personalized medicine is approachable if comprehensive details are known about the pathogenesis; the therapeutic agents developed for the management of the pathology in question; the biochemical mechanisms of action of the drugs; the interactions of the drugs with each other and with other endogenous or exogenous factors; and the genetic and epigenetic background of the patient, their chronobiological, nutritional and socio-demographic characteristics.
In this framework, the aim of this Special Issue on “Emerging strategies in drug development and clinical care in the era of personalized and precision medicine” is to unify the most relevant papers addressing the state-of-the-art knowledge and future directions in drug development, therapeutic strategies, and innovative drug formulations, with a focus on biochemical mechanisms of action and drug design, as well as the relevant preclinical and clinical testing of efficacy, pharmacokinetics and toxicity in the era of precision and personalized medicine.
We welcome articles dealing with all aspects of pharmaceutical and medical care, from basic to clinical research, and invite scientists and drug specialists to publish their original research works, review articles, and communications on this wide health domain.

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. Pharmaceutics 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 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.
