As Guest Editors, we are pleased to announce the launch of a Special Issue of Pharmaceutics titled “Peptide-Based and Hybrid Carriers for Nucleic Acid Delivery”. Nanoparticles formed by nucleic acids and peptide-based carriers can be a versatile tool for delivery of various genetic constructs (pDNA, siRNA, miRNA, mRNA, etc.) to cells in favor of gene therapy of inherited and acquired diseases. Their advantages include biodegradability and easiness of modification of the structure and amino acid composition. Natural (ligands, various intra- and extracellular signals, etc.) and synthetic (poly)peptide sequences can be used as part of peptide-based and hybrid carriers to overcome the barriers to the transport of therapeutic genetic material into the cells.
We invite you to contribute to the new Special Issue with the aim to gather and feature the latest advances, perspectives, and trends in the development of poly- and oligopeptide and peptide-containing hybrid carriers for the delivery of therapeutic nucleic acids. Both feature articles and literature reviews are acceptable for publication.

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.
