Journal of Materials Chemistry B is planning to produce a themed issue on Nanoparticles in Biology in 2013. Please e-mail the editorial office at materialsBfirstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in contributing an article.
The Guest Editors of the issue will be Professors Dan Luo (Dalian Cornell University, USA) Nathan Gianneschi (University of California, San Diego, USA) and Dan Peer (Tel Aviv University, Israel).
Advances in nanoscale science and bio-nanoengineering are revolutionizing our understanding and ability to manipulate complex biological processes as well as the way health care is administered. These approaches and innovations, collectively termed as nanomedicine, are on the verge of improving disease prevention, detection, treatment and management. It is perceivable that future developments in biopharmaceuticals will increasingly become driven by advances in enabling technologies such as genomics, proteomics, pharmacogenomics, and toxicogenomics and combine it with nano-scaled based technologies to enhance diagnosis and therapeutics of various diseases. This themed issue of Journal of Materials Chemistry B will focus on original papers detailing novel generation, characterization, applications and toxicity of different types of nanocarriers for various biomedical applications.
The deadline for the receipt of manuscripts for this themed issue is 15 April 2013.
Manuscripts can be submitted using the RSC’s online submissions service. Please clearly mark that the manuscript is submitted for the themed issue on ‘Nanoparticles in Biology’.
Please would you inform the editorial office by e-mail at materialsBemail@example.com as soon as possible if you plan to submit to the issue and whether your contribution will be original research or a review-type article. We would like to have a list of authors who intend to contribute as soon as possible.
