Due to the rapid development of nanostructures with biological applications, most of them with a great impact on the treatment of various diseases, this Special Issue of Molecules, "Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology: Novel Approaches," aims to provide an up to date and comprehensive overview of the fabrication, characterization, and current applications of smart nanoarchitectonics. Both bottom up and top down approaches intended to enrich the knowledge and applicative potential of this recent field are welcome.
The Special Issue scope is broad and includes the following areas: bioceramics, nanoparticles, biopolymers, liposomes, hybrid materials, nanocomposites, scaffolds, bio-printing, biomimetic nanomaterials, drug delivery and controlled release nanoshuttles, nano-functionalized surfaces, etc.
Considering the great interest regarding the development of personalized therapeutic and explorative approaches to efficiently coping with severe diseases, this Special Issue is expected to have an important scientific and applicative contribution on the field of molecular pharmaceutics.

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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
