Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Age-related neurodegenerative brain disorders and acute brain injuries are great medical challenges with no effective disease-modifying therapies. Currently available therapies are mainly centered on mitigating clinical symptoms. However, these symptomatic treatments have failed to control fundamental aspects of many brain diseases. Neurological disorders oftentimes involve not only pathological alterations within the affected neurons themselves but also unfavorable surrounding environments, thereby suggesting diverse therapeutic targets. Moreover, advanced biotechnologies have enabled us to come up with more revealing cellular and animal model systems with great flexibility in translational research.

In this regard, the aim of this Special Issue is to provide diverse translational approaches (as the format of original research articles or reviews) targeting brain-disease-associated pathological cells and molecular pathways by employing cellular and animal models of brain disorders. This Special Issue also welcomes translational and basic research on cell and animal model development which can be effectively used for high-throughput screening or preclinical studies.

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.
