Announcing the launch of In Review

Journal of Nanobiotechnology, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received

Aims and scope

Journal of Nanobiotechnology is an open access peer-reviewed journal communicating scientific and technological advances in the fields of medicine and biology, with an emphasis in their interface with nanoscale sciences. The journal provides biomedical scientists and the international biotechnology business community with the latest developments in the growing field of Nanobiotechnology.

Professor Weibo Cai (Editor-in-Chief)

Professor Cai is Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Radiology, Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, USA. Dr. Cai’s research at UW-Madison ( is primarily focused on molecular imaging and nanobiotechnology. Dr. Cai has authored >330 peer-reviewed articles (total citation: > 26000; H-index: 84) and received many awards, including the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) Springer Prize (2011 & 2013), American Cancer Society Research Scholar (2013-2017), Inaugural Nano Research Young Innovators (NR45) in Nanobiotechnology Award (2018), Highly Cited Researchers from Clarivate Analytics (Cross-Field, 2018), Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE, 2018), Fellow of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI, 2019), Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC, 2021), among many others. What Dr. Cai is most proud of is that his trainees at UW - Madison have received >100 awards to date, such as 2012 SNMMI Berson-Yalow Award and multiple SNMMI Young Investigator Awards, among others. More than a dozen of Dr. Cai’s trainees have started independent research groups at world-class universities. 

Professor Fernando Patolsky (Editor-in-Chief)

Professor Patolsky is Full Professor at the department of Chemistry, Tel Aviv University, Israel. As a well-acknowledged scientist in the fields of biotechnology and nanobiotechnology, Fernando's research focuses on the development of molecular and biomolecular electronic and optical systems, aiming to establish fundamental principles for the construction of optical and electronic sensors and biosensors. These scientific activities represent a leading interdisciplinary effort to bridge chemistry, biology and materials science. He has published more than 130 papers and book chapters since 1998, with more than 20,000 citations, that focus on the synthesis of novel nanoscale materials, the creation of electrical and optoelectrical nanoscale devices and their applications.
