Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are proud to announce the Special Issue, “Translational Chemistry: From a Single Molecule to Biological Research”, in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (MDPI IMJS Editorial; IF: 3.226) devoted to The 2nd International Caparica Christmas Conference on Translational Chemistry (2nd IC3TC-2018). (http://www.ic3tc2017.com/).

The conference will be held in Costa de Caparica, Portugal, 4–7 December, 2017. This Special Issue will select excellent papers from the oral (plenary, keynotes, and regular talks) and posters participations, and covers a very wide range of fields in chemistry and translational chemistry applied in translational research, focusing on toxicological, biological, medical, pharmaceutical, nano and bio-medical applications. We invite investigators to contribute with original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue.
