We are pleased to offer the opportunity to publish papers in the Special issue "Gas Plasma Technology in Biology and Medicine" via the journal Applied Sciences.
Guest editors are Dr. Sander Bekeschus, ZIK plasmatis, Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology, Greifswald, Germany and Dr. Anke Schmidt, Department for Plasma Lifescience, Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology, Greifswald, Germany
Medical gas plasma technology is increasingly gaining attention in the field of biology and medicine. This is owing to its therapeutic effects, as ample evidence in the fields of cancer, wound healing, and other dermatological disorders suggests. At the same time, medical gas plasmas are excellent tools to study the redox and biochemistry of reactive oxygen and nitrogen, and their reaction trajectories. With the medical application in mind, and many chemical and biological mechanisms yet unraveled, the plasma medicine field provides an exciting opportunity to work at the intersection between technology, engineering, chemistry, and biomedicine. This Special Issue welcomes submissions dealing with new findings, with gas plasma technology that may contribute to propelling their application in medicine in the future.
