About this Research Topic
The 16th International Symposium on Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry, held in the University of Ioannina in Greece, covers the specific areas of Metals in Medicine and covered biological and medical applications, method development and biomimetic materials.
This Research Topic aims to collate papers based on the presentations at the ISABC-16, surround the field of Bioinorganic Chemistry, and Medicine employing metal ions in the context of Chemical biology. We are interested in all phenomena, problems, and topics in which metal ions plays a role in the structure, function or applications in biology or medicine. We are particularly interested in original research papers which will detail the chemistry involved. We do welcome contributions from scientist interested in this general area, but that was not able to attend the conference.
In this Research Topic we invite submissions addressing the biological and biomedical effects of, but not limited to, the following metals:
• Transition metals
• Main group metal
Keywords: Metals, Medicine, Chemistry, Biology, ISABC-16, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Biometals
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
