Special Issue "Mechanistic In Vitro and In Silico Modeling of Oral Drug Absorption"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
Interests: oral absorption; gastrointestinal physiology; drug property; in vitro model; mechanistic model; modeling and simulation literacy
Mechanistic in vitro and in silico modeling of oral drug absorption is anticipated to enable accurate in vivo prediction. To achieve this goal, a better understanding of gastrointestinal physiology, drug properties, and molecular-level mechanisms is critically important.The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight current progress in this field. The scope of this issue includes in vitro models, mathematical mechanistic models, gastrointestinal physiology, drug properties, and related areas in oral drug absorption. In addition, modeling and simulation (M&S) literacy is the key to progress. Easy case-by-case parameter fitting underlies the sound development of sciences, as Ptolemy’s model did for astronomy over 1300 years. Therefore, articles related to M&S literacy are also welcome (e.g., identifiability analysis).

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. Pharmaceutics 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.
