Special Issue Information
The year 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of Biomedicines, a peer-reviewed open access journal in the biomedical field. So far, Biomedicines has published more than 2700 papers from more than 17,000 authors. We appreciate each author, reviewer, and academic editor whose support has brought us to where we are today.
To celebrate this significant milestone, we aim to publish a Special Issue entitled 10th Anniversary of Biomedicines—Aging Changes in Cells, Tissues and Organs. Cells are the basic structural and functional units of tissues, and they all experience changes with aging—they get larger, with less ability to divide and multiply, and many of them lose their ability to function or start to function abnormally. Some tissues face problems in obtaining oxygen and nutrients, as well as difficulties in the removal of carbon dioxide and other waste products. Some tissues lose mass, while others become rigid. In this sense, all vital organs suffer some degree of function loss with aging. Although aging occurs in all cells, tissues, and organs, affecting the functioning of every system in the body, most people do not notice this loss immediately because organs have a reserve capacity to function beyond their normal needs. However, when an organ is subjected to an effort that is greater than usual, it may fail to properly function properly. There are several factors that require an extraphysiological response in order to maintain homeostasis, namely, diseases, particular physiological states, significant changes in lifestyle, medications and their side effects, extreme temperature changes in the environment, etc.
This Special Issue aims to gather high-quality research concerning the structural and functional changes in organs, tissues, and cells during aging. New and comparative methodologies to understand the biology of these changes and review articles are welcomed. Potential topics include the following: tissue homeostasis and aging; proliferative homeostasis and aging; ageing and apoptosis; ageing-related tissue-specific alterations; oxidative stress, aging, and diseases; phenotypes and mechanisms of stem-cell aging; the interaction of lifelong influences; biological theories of aging; types of cell changes (atrophy, hypertrophy, hyperplasia, dysplasia, neoplasia); senescent cells in aging; and detection techniques of cellular senescence and cellular ageing.

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. Biomedicines 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 2200 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.
