Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The fields of endocrinology and metabolism are home to scientists and clinicians who commit themselves to dissecting and understanding the fundamental mechanisms of hormonal signaling and the regulation of complex endocrine networks in the body necessary for survival and optimal health. The range of endocrine disorders is wide and challenging to manage, with many conditions still not being fully understood and effective treatments still being deciphered. Advancements in science allow for novel, cutting-edge techniques to be developed and translated to the bedside, as seen in the historical leaps of genetic engineering which first cloned the human insulin gene in bacterial plasmids for large-scale insulin production. Gene knockouts, knock-ins and CRISPR-Cas 9 gene editing technologies interrogate disease processes with ever-increasing and finer precision and offer deep insights that can lead to new diagnostics and therapeutics strategies. This Issue is thus devoted to the exploration of exciting scientific discoveries and advances in the field of endocrine and metabolic physiology. It encompasses novel concepts, new research techniques and cutting-edge diagnostic methodologies and treatment paradigms that catalyze bench-to-bedside translation, so as to achieve better insights into the regulatory processes which orchestrate the complexities of endocrine and metabolic homeostasis. To this end, we invite experts in the field to contribute their research work to this Special Issue. It is hoped that such an endeavor will ultimately yield a book volume that will stand out as an inspiring resource for both the neophyte who wishes to be brought up to speed with the current knowledge, and also for the seasoned researcher who can benefit from the information within its pages.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Melvin K. S. Leow
Guest Editor

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
