Nanoparticle interactions with the biological milieu mediate their toxicity, bioactivity, efficacy, circulation time, and biodistribution. Understanding how these nanoparticles interact with that milieu remains one of the most important obstacles regarding the development of future imaging, antimicrobial, and therapeutic agents.
Therefore, the current Special Issue emphasizes those studies that focus on nanoparticle interactions with cells, proteins, extra-cellular matrix; bacteria, viruses, and DNA. Beyond the mechanisms of interactions, the cutting edge issues include novel testing methods and the biological response associated with nanoparticle interactions with the biological milieu.
We look forward to receiving your contributions as either reviews or technical manuscripts for this Special Issue.
Prof. Dr. Frank Alexis
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. Bioengineering 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 1600 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.
