A biomarker is a characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biologic processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic responses to a therapeutic intervention. However, in most disease areas, we need to develop predictive biomarker assays that can provide an earlier indication of pathophysiological alterations which could prompt earlier, targeted and personalized treatments. Biosensors is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that focuses on the basic science and technological innovations that support the development of biosensors. This Special Issue on “Biomarkers” will focus on publishing original research, reviews and perspectives on biomarkers that may be used in biosensors at the interface between surface chemistry, physical chemistry, biology and medicine.
