Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is hard to imagine biomedical research today without a decisive role for nanoparticles. Due to their unique properties and size, which are similar to those of biomolecules, the application potential of nanoparticles is huge in this field. Firstly, there are plenty of different novel synthesis procedures to prepare nanoparticles of various property profiles (composition, size, structures, surface modification, etc.). Secondly, since analytical methods are becoming more and more sophisticated, we are learning how an intelligent combination of nanoparticle properties can interact with a physiological environment in a positive manner. This results in improvements in diagnostics as well as in therapy.

Biomedical nanoparticles can be prepared for in vitro or in vivo imaging, bind biomarkers, be functionalized for proper targeting, encapsulate, transport, and release drugs, and finally improve the properties of existing medical and pharmaceutical products and thus extend the range of their application.

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit full research papers, review articles, opinions, and communications to this Special Issue focusing on “Novel Nanoparticles in Biomedical Applications”, including but not limited to novel multifunctional nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, syntheses, and surface modification strategies to overcome different biological barriers, and also topics related to biosensing.

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. Journal of Functional Biomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
