Special Issue "Nanomaterials in Gene Therapy"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2017).
Interests: biopharmaceuticals; plasmid DNA, minicircle DNA and RNA; gene therapy; gene silencing
Nanomaterials presents the Special Issue, “Nanomaterials in Gene Therapy”, which intends to present the most innovative materials, approaches, and technologies under development to bring Gene Therapy to clinical reality. There are several challenges in this field, but the latest advances show that both efficacy and safety can be achieved.
Gene Therapy’s success is highly dependent on the efficient delivery of genetic material to the cells, which motivates the design, development, optimization, and establishment of novel concepts and materials to improve gene delivery and therapy. In line with this, the original research papers of this Special Issue will focus on new materials, designs, and functionalization strategies under evaluation, to guarantee the genetic material stability and improve encapsulation and delivery to the targets. Gathering all this information, new insights and future perspectives about Nanomaterials in Gene Therapy will arise.

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.
