Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Biomolecular Screening: Novel Therapeutic Approaches for Neglected Infectious Diseases
Guest Editors Julio Martin, Ph.D., and Eric Chatelain, Ph.D.
The Journal of Biomolecular Screening (JBS) invites the submission of abstracts on topics related to novel therapeutic approaches for neglected infectious diseases. Abstracts will be used to select and invite papers for final review. JBS is looking for high quality, short or full length data-driven research papers, reviews and perspective articles related to approaches undertaken (both technological and strategic) to discover and advance new chemical entities for the treatment of neglected tropical diseases (novel methods, success stories and lessons learned). Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
-- Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) as listed by the World Health Organization (www.who.int/neglected_diseases/diseases/en/), such as kinetoplastids and helminths
-- HTS/HCS Phenotypic screening, assay development and methods
-- Secondary screening assays
-- Virtual screening
-- Informatics approaches to new targets and compounds
-- Orthology approaches to drug repurposing
-- Novel chemical diversity
-- Target Identification, Validation and Deconvolution
-- Omics methodologies
-- Chemical Biology
-- Networks and Systems Biology
-- Non-invasive techniques for animal models and Biomarkers
-- Translational Biology
-- Strategic Aspects: global health, partnership and funding models, open source discovery, etc.
