The aging of the population poses a growing burden in society. This is associated with the increase in disability and diseases that have a high impact on health care, on patients and their families. Likewise, aging is associated with the appearance of neurodegenerative diseases. Although each of these diseases has its own characteristics, they all share altered proteostasis, oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. In recent years, it has been described that the transcription factor NRF2 is involved in the modulation of all these processes, becoming a pleiotropic factor. Therefore, understanding the involvement of NRF2 in the different mechanisms associated with neurodegeneration may be of vital importance in establishing new therapeutic targets.
As guest editor, I invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, whose focus will be the role of NRF2 in neurodegenerative disorders.
We also invite researchers in the field and the participants of The COST Action CA20121, Bench to Bedside Transition for Pharmacological regulation of NRF2 in non-communicable diseases (BenBedPhar) to submit their latest research findings to this Special Issue. We look forward to reading your contributions.

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. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
