Special Issue on “Progress in Non-Viral Gene Transfer for Gene Therapy Applications

Non-viral vectors for gene therapy, presenting a non-invasive to the genome approach, are emerging as the new generation of DNA vectors for Gene Therapy and I am currently editing a Special Issue on “Progress in Non-Viral Gene Transfer for Gene Therapy Applications” in the journal Genes (ISSN 2073-4425; IF 4.096). As the Guest Editor, I would like to invite you to contribute a paper on a pertinent topic.

I believe it is important that contributions derive from the whole spectrum of engagement, that is from groups with long and high standing in the field to those engaged in an intersection with a gene therapy topic, presenting valuable data and credible opinions, which will enhance our common understanding and increase the impact of this Special Issue.

Accordingly, I would be delighted if you would consider submitting a review or research article to this Issue. For further reading, please follow the link to the Special Issue website at:


The submission deadline is 20 June 2022. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
