Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is part of the MDPI journal initiative to promote and support the contributions of women in research. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the scientific achievements of women in the field of “Noncoding RNAs and Diseases”. Noncoding RNAs have emerged as important biomarkers and therapeutic targets for all kinds of diseases. We cordially invite researchers to submit their work on topics across all areas of “Noncoding RNAs and Diseases”. Both original research and review articles are welcome.

For this Special Issue, we primarily welcome all research led by female scientists, where male scientists may offer support for the initiative as co-authors. However, we welcome submissions from all authors, irrespective of gender.
