Special Issue "Precision Medicine and Therapy for Neurodegenerative Disorders"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: CaM kinase II, neuronal plasticity, neuronal death
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The molecular mechanisms and biomarkers for refractory neurodegenerative disorders have been addressed within the last ten years, suggesting that precision medicine and therapeutics will be available within several decades. For instance, mechanisms for protein aggregation, spreading, and metabolism of misfolding proteins such as amyloid beta, alpha-synuclein, phosphorylated tau, and TDP43 are well documented and diagnosis with CSF biomarkers are currently established. However, we should accelerate the translational clinical research of precision medicine for patient and their families. In this Special Issue, we invite you to submit your novel therapeutic strategy and diagnosis for neurodegeneration including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body disease, and frontotemporal lobar degeneration and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to accelerate the drug development. Papers exploring the development of neuroprotective drugs for brain injuries are also welcome to this Special Issue.
Reviews and original works will be published as early as possible.

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.
