Special Issue "Metabolomics/Lipidomics in Radiation Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 August 2020.
Interests: biodosimetry; space radiation; low dose and low dose rate; radiotherapy; radioprotectors/mitigators
We are pleased to announce a Special Issue of the journal Metabolites dedicated to metabolomic and lipidomic responses to ionizing radiation. Metabolomics and lipidomics have contributed significant knowledge to basic and more clinically oriented research and, together with other -omics technologies, can provide a holistic view in a cellular, tissue, or systemic level. This issue will aim to incorporate novel and review papers from a wide range of key topics in the radiation research field. Normal tissue responses, tumor and tumor microenvironment, radiation quality, dose and dose rate effects, metabolic responses to radioprotectors and mitigators, and biomarkers in tissues (including tissue imaging) and biofluids are key topics in the radiation research field. Papers will be published as accepted and assembled in the Special Issue appearing in 2020.

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. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
