Special Issue "Nano-Scale Gene Delivery Systems"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: biological efficiency of nanotools for cancer targeting, therapy and imaging; proof of concept in vitro and in vivo of theranostic potential of photoactivable nanoparticles under one or two-photon excitation for photodynamic therapy, gene or drug delivery, and imaging
Currently, two big challenges in medicine concern (i) the development of highly efficient and biocompatible nanomaterials and (ii) the use of gene therapy. The coupling of these two fields could lead to an unprecedented technological advance and a therapeutic strategy of rupture, thanks to the development of furtive and targeted nanocargos for gene delivery.
In this Special Issue, we are especially interested in works that describe nanomaterials or polymers that are able to capture nuclei acids and deliver them to the targeted tissue. This delivery could be passive or dependent on an external stimulus. This Special Issue invites manuscripts that provide novel scientific findings on the genetic material delivery of 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. Nanomaterials 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 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.
