The molecular probe is one of the major components of molecular imaging. Over the past few decades, numerous molecular probes have been developed for different imaging modalities, including optical imaging, radionuclide imaging, photoacoustic imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound imaging, etc. Many of them have been evaluated in small animal models, and some of them have proceeded into clinical studies, which demonstrates that molecular probes will likely make a huge impact on patient management in the era of precision medicine.
This Special Issue of Molecules will concentrate on the latest developments in molecular probe development. We encourage authors to submit research papers and comprehensive reviews describing novel molecular probes and theranostic agents and their imaging properties.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
