Special Issue "Trends in Molecular Research for Transplantation Immunology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 March 2020).
Interests: organ transplantation; transplantation immunology; immunosuppressants; T cells; B cells; CD4; CD8
This Special Issue of IJMS brings articles in all areas related to transplantation immunology including tissue injury, transplant rejection and acceptance, and immunosuppression to highlight both progress and gaps in knowledge. It covers our current understanding of antigen recognition, signal transduction, epigenetics, cell signaling, and the regulatory and effector mechanisms of the innate and adaptive immune systems. This also includes the new frontiers in molecular diagnostics for antibody and T cell-mediated cellular rejection in patients after solid organ transplantation. Such information has proven important in understanding the action of immunosuppressive drugs and will prove useful in the design of new immunotherapies. This Issue offers a range of articles across the fields of clinical and experimental transplantation.
Specific Topics covered in this Issue include (but not limited to) the following: genome editing, ischemia reperfusion injury, tissue repair, cell therapy, innate immune systems in allorecognition, adaptive immunity, immune regulation, HLA and antibodies, pathology, new technical developments, the future of immunosuppression.

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.
