Biosensing plays a critical role in facilitating the detection and analysis of biomacromolecules such as proteins, lipid bilayers, and nucleic acids. Some of the most exciting developments concern interfacial science topics and surface-based biosensors continually evolve for advanced fundamental and translational research applications. This Special Issue focuses on biosensing applications in the interfacial sciences. A wealth of new sensor technologies have been developed in recent years, including in the areas of optical, piezoelectric, electrochemical, and fluorescent detection methods. In addition, surface functionalization strategies have greatly advanced, enabling increased sensitivity and specificity for detecting molecular recognition events. Works presenting novel demonstrations of biosensors for interfacial science applications as well as introducing improved surface functionalization methods will be broadly welcome.
We welcome submissions from any area of biosensing, provided that interfacial science concepts are involved in sensor design or use. Both research papers and review articles will be considered. If you are interested in contributing to this Special Issue, we would very much appreciate receiving the tentative title of your contribution.

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 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.
