Special Issue "Immunological Investigations in Hematology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: cellular and molecular immunology; immunohematology; T-cells; cytokines; transcription; HIV-1; autoimmunity
This thematic Special Issue will focus on the immune system as an active participant in hematology and hematologic diseases. Immune cells and soluble mediators are major components of blood and lymphoid tissues, are involved directly in immune-mediated hematologic diseases, and are used as diagnostic and therapeutic tools in all aspects of hematology.
We welcome research or review papers on immune system involvement in hematology, including, but not limited to, the following topics:
- The role of immune cells and cytokines in hematology and hematologic diseases;
- Immune biomarkers for hematologic diseases;
- Immunomodulators in hematology and hematologic diseases;
- Immunotherapeutic approaches to hematologic diseases (including CAR T-cells);
- Immunodiagnostic tools for hematologic diseases.

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.
