Special Issue "Nanomaterials for Biodetection and Drug Delivery"
A special issue of Biosensors (ISSN 2079-6374).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2013)
The special issue on “Nanomaterials for Biodetection and Drug Delivery” will be a compendium of latest research on the utilization and development of nanomaterials for biodetection and drug delivery, including but not limited to developing nanotechnologies to detect and/or characterize biological and chemical agents related to plant, food, soil, animal, and human systems, and developing nanomaterials and systems for more effective and controlled delivery of therapeutic agents/drugs. On the biodetection front, we set to address biosensors based on electrochemical, optical, mass, acoustic, magnetic, and immuno-based concepts that explore nano-enabled target recognition beyond standard antibody-antigen interactions, such as aptamers, peptides, carbohydrate-lipid-based linkers are all of interest. On the drug delivery front, novel design of nano-enabled drug delivery systems and their performance evaluation and characterization will be entertained.

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 papers will be 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. Biosensors 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 350 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.
