Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomedicine based on self-assembled nanocarriers has attracted attention to the development of effective drug and gene delivery. Nanomedicine with multi-functionalities for a drug and gene delivery are designed using polymer micelles, vesicles, and liposomes through the synthesis of self-assembled polymers and lipid molecules. This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the dissemination of the latest information on nanomedicine, including widely from nanocarrier design to in vivo experiments.

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.
