Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Nanomaterials have recently been utilized in a number of different applications in biotechnology, pioneering advances in the biomedical field through the areas of drug delivery, imaging, sensing, and tissue engineering. They have been demonstrated to substantially enhance treatment efficacy, protect healthy tissue from the adverse effects of toxic therapeutics, safely deliver degradable genetic medicines, target the therapies to the disease site, and serve as therapeutics on their own. Nanomaterials can be structurally adapted to a particular application and rendered biocompatible while facilitating the imaging and diagnostics of a variety of conditions. Such multifunctionality can address critical biomedical issues and enable novel advantageous pharmaceutic approaches.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to cover the latest advancements in the applications of nanomaterials in the development of pharmaceutical platforms and formulations for a variety of conditions. The scope of the issue includes drug and gene delivery, diagnostic or theranostic formulations, as well as nanomedicines.

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 2200 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.
