Biosensors have been extensively studied for their role in detecting and monitoring different types of analytes for clinical and medical applications. This Special Issue focuses on research and development in the field of biosensors as analytical tools for cancer biomarkers analysis. These biomarkers are currently a major area of research and, as more biomarkers are discovered and their roles in disease becomes better understood, this will continue to grow. Affinity biosensors are usually applied to detect gene mutations of biomarkers and protein biomarkers. In the last years, great progress has been accomplished in the development of biosensors based on artificial molecular recognition elements, such as aptamers, phage display peptides, binding proteins and synthetic peptides. Biosensors utilizing new molecular receptors and various transducers, including optical, piezoelectric, electrochemical, and more, will be welcome.
I would like to invite you to participate by submitting both original research papers and review articles on biosensors for cancer biomarkers detection. This Special Issue aims to highlight the novel approaches in this rapidly emergent research area.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
