Special Issue "Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury: Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
It is currently appreciated that understanding the molecular mechanisms of traumatic brain injury is of ample importance to launch goal-driven, rationally targeted therapies.
Thus far, despite promising developments in fundamental research, practically no clinical trials have proved effective in the treatment of traumatic brain injury. This has led to the recognition that our exploratory strategies should be revisited, and clinically relevant trauma models as well as translationally relevant endpoints should be established.
This conclusion has materialized in the construction of the Common Data Elements and the initiation of the Operation Brain Trauma Therapy program.
This Special Issue is aimed to summarize and coordinate thoughts, knowledge, and efforts to provide a better understanding of traumatic brain injury and open up new perspectives in bench-to-bedside approaches leading to a more efficient care for the head injured.
Specifically, we invite manuscripts focusing on molecular/pathobiological processes operant in various clinically relevant models of traumatic brain injury. We particularly encourage submission of reports on molecular, proteomic, metabolomic, and imaging markers of traumatically evoked brain injury, as well as studies of therapeutic interventions where target engagement is based on well-defined pathobiological processes with morphological, functional endpoints of translational relevance.

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.
