Special Issue "Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 January 2022.
Neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, etc.) currently represent a major challenge to public health worldwide, especially as our population continues to age. Neurodegeneration is characterized by the progressive degeneration of specific neuronal populations driven by, as of yet, unknown cellular and molecular pathogenic mechanisms. Since there is no cure or effective treatment for these disorders, the characterization of the specific mechanisms that lead to neurodegeneration, as well as the identification of potential novel targets for the development of new therapeutic strategies, is a major priority in this field.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the main cellular and molecular pathogenic mechanisms, elucidated thus far, that lead to the onset and progression of these devastating neurodegenerative disorders, highlighting both the common and specific pathways involved in each one of them.

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. Cells 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 2000 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.
