The near-infrared fluorescence imaging (NIR, 700-1700 nm) shows great potential for improving bioimaging and biosensing in both fundamental research and clinical applications due to its non-invasive, high-penetration, high-sensitivity and low-signal to background ratio and real-time imaging properties in comparison with traditional imaging modalities. Many inorganic and organic NIR fluorophore probes including lanthanide-doped nanocrystals, quantum dots, organic dyes, fluorescent proteins and single-walled carbon nanotubes have been developed for advanced NIR imaging based biological applications. Recent advances in NIR fluorescence imaging, such as new NIR materials, improvements in NIR fluorescence, multi-modality or multi-dimensions, the combination with new instrumentation and systems, etc., have allowed the emergence of new devices, methodologies and biological applications.

The design, synthesis, and engineering of various NIR fluorescence probes, especially novel materials or molecules, promote the development of the NIR bioimaging and therapy. The application of new characterization techniques revealed more physical and chemical properties of these NIR fluorescence probes. Combined with new instrumentation and systems, high in-vivo spatiotemporal resolution and noninvasiveness of bioimaging, biosensing and therapy in diverse fields can be realized. Through this themed issue, we aim to call for advances in basic science in various novel NIR fluorescence probes, new instrumentation and systems, multi-dimensions imaging, and applications in diverse fields to expand the scope of near-infrared fluorescence field and call on the research community to strengthen cooperation with scientists among diverse research fields.

We welcome the submissions of high-quality Original Research, Review, Mini-Review, and Perspective articles on this topic. Research themes include, but not limited to the following list:
1) Design, synthesis, engineering and improvement of various novel NIR fluorescence probes;
2) the combination of new instrumentation and systems for NIR fluorescence imaging;
3) multi-modality or multi-dimensions (wavelength, lifetime, polarization, etc) imaging for advanced NIR biological application;
4) applications of novel NIR fluorescence probes in diverse fields (imaging, therapy, precise excision, drug delivery, etc.).

Keywords: Near-infrared imaging, Bioimaging and biosensing, Fluorescence imaging, NIR probes, Image-guided therapy, Image-guided surgery
