From the initial, epoch-making work of Bruce Merrifield and solid-phase peptide synthesis, the era of protein biosynthesis, along with drug-delivery and processes, has come a long way. Having mastered methods to introduce unnatural amino acids, and moieties of interest into protein chains, we are now firmly in the era of biologicals. Matching these efforts and surpassing them will enable us to make inroads into drug-design and delivery processes. While in silico computational approaches remain the mainstay of the drug development pipeline, novel delivery systems embrace nanotechnology to enhance delivery efficacy and specificity.
In this Special Issue, we cover advances in protein biosynthesis, drug-design, and delivery processes and remark on the future of these arenas.

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. Processes 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.
