Special Issue Information
In the last few decades, nanomaterials have been increasingly applied to a wide range of scientific fields. Importantly, they have gained recognition as fundamental tools for human health improvement. Many efforts have been put into nanotechnology for creating biocompatible multifunctional devices such as nanosensors and advanced noninvasive devices such as wearable electronics. Researchers have developed many platforms for drug delivery and targeted therapy, and imaging techniques, simultaneously providing diagnosis and therapy, have greatly revolutionized conventional medicine. This is defined as nanotheranostics that integrates the advantages of stimuli-responsive nanomaterials, nanocarriers actively targeting diseased tissues, and nanoparticles designed for phototherapy and immunotherapy applications. Nanomedicine has been established as a new discipline achieving many ambitious objectives, displaying its beneficial effects on human well-being and opening the way towards personalized medicine.
This sector represents the new frontier of healthcare: the possibility of stratifying patients in different groups by diagnostic testing and providing them with individual therapies based on their specific molecular and genetic fingerprints has been revealed as invaluable. Importantly, medicine has also been revolutionized by the development of big data analysis, and nowadays many diseases may be prevented, allowing early-stage detection, or may be more easily followed up during therapy.

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 Nanotheranostics 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 1000 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.
