Biosensors have become more and more important due to their essential role in the detection of various physiological markers for biomedical research. They can be highly specific, able to work in different physical parameters depending on the design, and reusable. These unique advantages of biosensors have attracted many researchers to develop different innovative strategies, such as point-of-care detection and wearable and implantable systems. The emerging field of bioelectronics, on the other hand, explores the relationship between biology and electronics for applications such as powering microelectronic systems, information processing, and storage using biological fuel cells, bionics, and biomaterials.
In this context, biosensor and bioelectronic systems play a crucial role in the diagnosis and monitoring of various diseases, and healthcare applications. There are challenges, particularly specificity, sensitivity, selectivity, and stability of the devices in need of advanced approaches and technologies. For final products, simplicity, adaptability, and integration are also critical issues.
This Special Issue is devoted to exploring new approaches, solutions, and applications in biosensor and bioelectronics for biomedical applications. We would like to invite you to contribute with original research papers, as well as comprehensive reviews (subject to editorial pre-approval), focusing on biosensing and bioelectronic solutions in biomedical applications. Contributions to address certain issues in biomedical applications might include but not limited to following topics:
- Electrochemical biosensors
- Optic based biosensors
- Point-of-care biosensing
- DNA biosensors
- Wearable biosensor and bioelectronics
- Lab-on-chip bioelectronics
- Self-powered bioelectronics
- Biomaterials for biosensor and bioelectronics

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.
