Fluorescence nanoprobes refer to nanostructures that can re-emit light upon light excitation for the detection of specific target locations and activation, identifying protein interactions and conformation changes in any chemical or biological processes in vitro and in vivo. Fluorescence nanoprobes have shown their unique properties because of their strongly fluorescent signal, excellent photostability, enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect, as well as versatile surface chemistry for various applications. The performance of the fluorescence nanoprobes is highly dependent on the design strategy and chemical synthesis methods. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials, “Fluorescence Nanoprobes: From Synthesis to Applications”, aims at collecting research articles that report the design, characterization, and prospective applications of fluorescence nanoprobes in molecular imaging, molecular interaction, image-guided delivery and release, theranostics and various target analysis, in a wide range of research fields, including nanotechnology, biotechnology, biomedical engineering and nanomedicine. The format of full papers, communications, and reviews is welcomed.

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.
