The smart materials and advanced microsystems technologies have greatly contributed to drug delivery and diagnostics fields. For example, different nano- and microparticles have been designed to deliver drugs, with smart features, including targeting, control release, theranostics etc.
Different advanced technologies, e.g. microfluidics, 3D printing, electrospinning etc. have been used to develop on site drug delivery and in vitro/in vivo diagnostic tools.
Different biomedical imaging tools have been used for advanced diagnostics etc.
In this special issue, we aim to collect the most recent applications of smart materials and advanced microsystems technologies in drug delivery and diagnostics. We are especially interested in the clinical and biomedical related applications that have a lead to future clinical and biomeical applications.

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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
