Substantial evidence suggests that small organic molecules decorated with sulfur, selenium, or tellurium (organochalcogens) have a plethora of effects on different diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer’s, and infectious and parasitic diseases. This Special Issue will gather the latest advances in the preclinical development of these organochalcogen derivatives. Thus, this Special Issue will collect strong in vitro and in vivo data regarding the molecular biology of these organochalcogens. Additionally, research articles could contain synthesis and characterization of new organochalcogen derivatives and the development of new carriers, although it is not the main aim of this Special Issue. To sum up, this Special Issue will contribute to the preclinical development of organochalcogens, which have demonstrated to date unique and unexpected features compared with the related non-organochalcogen analogs.

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.
