Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Advances in polymer science are critical to the successful development of multi-component composites in particulate systems for biomedical applications. They hold great promise due to their facile synthesis and excellent biocompatibility, tolerability, and bioavailability. Polymer material platforms, including polymer–drug conjugates, polymeric micelles, polymersomes, and dendrimers, are extensively used in theranostic nanomedicine, enabling the molecular diagnosis, targeted drug delivery, and the simultaneous monitoring and treatment of diseases.
This Special Issue is a collection of original research papers, reviews, and communications that addresses the synthesis and formulation of polymer particles containing imaging agents (iodine, gold, SPIONPs, gadolinium, etc.), therapeutics (DNA, siRNA, proteins, small drugs, etc.), and targeting moieties to develop an efficient delivery system. These multifunctional polymeric particles will help overcome challenges in clinical nanomedicine and could provide good therapeutic outcomes to patients.

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. Polymers 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.
