Sensing as a tool for monitoring is a promising approach for food control, environmental analysis, and early diagnosis in medicine. The aim of this Special Issue “Chemical and Biological Sensors for Food Control, Environmental Analysis and Diagnosis in Medicine” is to promote reviews and regular research papers including aspects of chemical and biological sensing with applications in life sciences.
We aim to gather different specialists working in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, engineering, computers and automation sciences, and medical fields to suggest innovative approaches to sensing for a better quality of life.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
(Tele)diagnosis, (Tele)monitoring and (Tele)management in Medicine
- Analytical and bioanalytical methods for screening and diagnosis in medicine
- Endocrine disruptors: advances in assessing environmental health risk and human health
- Environmental pollution and health—sensing, (tele)monitoring and modelling of environmental risk factors
- (Tele)diagnosis and (tele)management of environmental-factor-related disorders
- Improving health promotion, lifelong physical activity and disease prevention
New Trends in Nutritional Sciences and Food Control
- Nutrient sensing and disease
- New (bio)sensors for food control
- Analytical and bioanalytical methods for food characterization
- Food and drug safety control
- Nutrition status and health
- (Tele)management of nutrition in disease prevention and treatment
- Food environments and adolescent health
- New perspectives on neuroscience of taste and olfaction
New Trends in (Bio)engineering Sciences Applied in Life Sciences
- Innovative smart healthcare and bio-medical systems: artificial intelligence, intelligent computing and connected technologies
- New (bio)materials used in medical and electronic fields
- Progress in 3D bioprinting technology for tissue/organ regenerative engineering
- Nanotechnology for life sciences
- Built environment, urbanization and chronic non-communicable disease
- Hospital hygiene through engineering and ICT solutions.
- Building materials impact on human health
- Occupant safety and health in constructions
- Monitoring the indoor air quality in buildings
- Electronic medical devices
We invite the submission of original manuscripts dealing with the proposed topics, while not being limited to these presented in the frame of the International Conference NT-SMT-LS 2020 (http://www.healthfoodenviron.unitbv.ro/2020/), to be held in Bucharest, Romania (a special discount of 20% will be provided to papers presented during the conference, if the article is accepted by at least two independent reviewers of the journal).
The submission deadline is 30 January 2021. You may send your manuscript at any point from now until the deadline.
We look forward to welcoming your contribution to this Special Issue.Prof. Dr. Mihaela Badea
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. Chemosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
