Intracellular sensing (e.g., the sensing of reactive oxygen species, metal ions, pH, etc.) is important for understanding cell functioning. In the last few years, advances in nanotechnology, and in the synthesis of nanomaterials, have played a dominant role in the development of intracellular sensing. This special issue welcomes papers that deal with all sensing techniques, such as fluorescent nanoparticles (NPs), semiconductor NPs, metal NPs, and polymer NPs, as well as all types of nanowire and nanotube based-sensors, MEMS probes, etc. Besides manuscripts dealing with the sensors themselves, and what they can sense, manuscripts on sensor biocompatibility and cytotoxicity are also welcome.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
