Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Signaling: From Past to Future
Interests: Staphylococci; bone infections; biofilm
Much progress has been made in the signaling field over the last twenty years; new molecules and mechanisms have been discovered and novel methods and technologies invented. While only a few specialists worked in the field in the 1990s, today, signaling pathways play a prominent role in the research of most life scientists. Nonetheless, signal transduction remains a very dynamic field that covers many aspects from basic to translational research. Our understanding of the molecular signaling pathways has made it possible to specifically design drugs that intervene at dysregulated signaling nodes or to repair missing signaling molecules through gene therapy.
This second Special Issue invites both original research articles as well as reviews, commentaries, and perspectives that cover all aspects of signal transduction. As the focus theme of this 24th meeting of the Signal Transduction Society (STS) is “target identification and intervention”, we especially welcome manuscripts that address this topic.
Addendum: The Signal Transduction Society (STS) was established in 1998 and is a non-profit organization that provides an interdisciplinary forum for scientists with an interest in signal transduction processes in cells and organisms. The STS annually organizes the “Joint Meeting Signal Transduction—Receptor, Mediators and Genes”. This year, the meeting will take place in Weimar from 2 to 3 November in a shortened form due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
