Call for papers – Molecular and nanotheranostics

A slide containing the details outlined in this blog post, and a photograph of T. Govindaraju

RSC Chemical Biology and RSC Medicinal Chemistry are delighted to welcome papers for an online themed collection on ‘Molecular and nanotheranostics’, guest edited by Prof. Thimmaiah Govindaraju (Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, India).

 Over a decade of intense research has positioned theranostics as a promising and integrated approach to advance biomedical research and medicine. The term theranostics essentially conveys the idea of combining therapeutic and diagnostic modalities to provide a holistic solution for disease management. Theranostics is also referred to as diagnostic therapy, wherein molecular and/or material tools for non-invasive treatment and diagnostic imaging are strategically embedded into a single system. For instance, multifunctional diagnostic platforms carrying therapeutic and target tracking agents offer remedial effects and imaging of markers in tissue or organs, which is used to assess disease staging, treatment planning and therapeutic efficacy.

Theranostics has the potential to revolutionize the practice and adaptation of personalized medicine to tackle chronic disease conditions like cancer and neuronal disorders. Generally, radiopharmaceutical, nano and macromolecular systems armed with tools to detect, treat, track, and image biomolecular targets in real-time have been employed as theranostics to effectively manage disease progression and cure.

In recent years, the field has witnessed the emergence of small molecules or small molecular conjugates as theranostic tools. This special collection in RSC Chemical Biology and RSC Medicinal Chemistry intends to cover and highlight advancements in molecular theranostics with particular emphasis on chemical biology of molecular design of theranostic tools and their selective interaction with the biomolecular targets to image and ameliorate the pathological conditions. This themed collection is anticipated to catalyze the development of precision theranostics as advanced and personalizable tools in chemical biology and modern medicine.

 The deadline for submissions is 1 May 2023.

 Articles can be submitted via  the appropriate journal’s website, where you can find details on their scopes and focus. RSC Chemical Biology accepts exceptionally significant and breakthrough findings of interest to the chemical biology community, while RSC Medicinal Chemistry publishes significant research in medicinal chemistry and related drug discovery science.

The first RSC Chemical Biology Emerging Investigators collection

Photographs of the six corresponding authors on the articles in this collection

We’re pleased to announce that our first Emerging Investigators collection has now been published online!

Read the collection

RSC Chemical Biology is committed to supporting and recognizing the excellent work of early career researchers. We are thus proud to present our first annual Emerging Investigators collection. The collection showcases research carried out by internationally recognised, up-and-coming scientists in the early stage of their independent careers who are making outstanding contributions to their respective fields. Each contributor was recommended by an expert in their field for carrying out work with the potential to influence future directions. The collection encompasses the entire scope of the journal.

Looking forward, we will soon be inviting for an Emerging Investigators Collection that will be published in 2023, and you are encouraged to recommend a colleague at the beginning of their career by contacting the Editorial Office. To be considered, a scientist must be a research group leader with less than 10 years of independent research (although the timescale is flexible in cases of career breaks and personal circumstances).

Congratulations to all the featured researchers on their work. Join us in celebrating their contributions!

Cross-journal themed collection on “Multimolecular Crowding in Biosystems”

We’re excited to share with you our new cross-journal themed collection on “Multimolecular Crowding in Biosystems” for RSC Chemical Biology and ChemComm.

Living cells comprise a variety of molecules from small cations/anions, metabolites, lipids, peptides, to biopolymers such as peptides/proteins, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids. These biomolecules are highly condensed inside the live cells and their distribution and concentration are heterogeneously varied (in a controlled manner). Such multimolecular crowding conditions are sharply distinct from those of conventional biochemical study, should be crucial for elucidating structures and functions of biomolecules in live cells, as well as for developing functional artificial molecules useful in chemical biology study, drug discovery, and medical diagnosis.

In this cross-journal themed issue, explore research papers, reviews, and communications in ChemComm and RSC Chemical Biology concerning chemical, physical, theoretical, or biological characterization of various biomolecules under the multimolecular crowding conditions. Also discover the development of chemical tools and devices enabling the detection and imaging of key biomolecules and the relevant events in live cells, methods for the structural modification and functional switching/control of biomolecules, and analytical or physical chemistry approaches applicable to study of multimolecular crowding biosystems.
