Nanoscintillators are emerging nanomaterials that have rapidly gained a growing amount of interest for theranostic biomedical applications. Although scintillating materials were initially developed for the detection of ionizing radiations, nanoscintillators are currently investigated for their ability to potentiate radiation therapy via the physical radiation dose-enhancement effect, radioluminescence-induced photodynamic therapy, and the direct generation of DNA damage through the emission of UV-C radioluminescence.
In this Special Issue, we welcome submissions of high-quality research and review articles presenting investigations of biomedical applications of nanoscintillators and related content. We welcome all type of report, including in silico, in vitro and in vivo studies.Dr. Anne-Laure Bulin

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. Radiation is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
