Special Issue "Cell Adhesion and Migration in Health and Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 August 2020).
This Special Issue focuses on the biology and pathobiology of cell adhesion and migration. Cell adhesion and migration represent a biological phenomenon that plays many important roles in health and diseases: from organ development, host defense, hemostasis, to cancer, inflammation, and thrombosis. The topics covered include but are not limited to: intracellular and extracellular signaling mechanisms regulating cell adhesion and migration; adhesive interactions involved in homeostasis and disease pathogenesis; genetics and gene regulation in cell adhesion; cytokines and chemokines affecting cell adhesive interactions; cell migration in diseases and animal models; experimental therapeutics to interfere with cell adhesion; and biophysics and bioengineering of cell adhesion. Original investigations as well as concise review manuscripts from experts in the relevant research fields will be considered for publication.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
