Peptides are intrinsically functional systems through a variety of interactions provided by the side chains of the amino acids. Synthetic amino acids enable addition of noncanonical functionalities in addition to the natural reactions. Peptides can also self-assemble into nanostructures and produce nanoscale materials that can be exploited as extracellular matrix mimics, protein function and drug delivery applications. Recently, peptide-based materials have been showed to be convenient for manipulating biological machinery and engineering biological systems.
This Special Issue covers a variety of peptide based functional nanomaterials, which can find applications in regenerative medicine, drug delivery, bioimaging, immunoengineering, and biocatalysis. Review and research articles in this Special Issue will provide insights and perspectives in applications of various peptide-based nanomaterials.

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 2000 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.
