    We are currently accepting submissions for our upcoming special issue entitled “Drug Design and Discovery for COVID-19”, which will be published in the journal, Computational and Mathematical Biophysics (CMB). The purpose of this special issue is to provide a medium for researchers from mathematical and biophysical sciences and other related disciplines to report novel mathematical models, analysis, computational algorithms, and biological applications to explore the mechanism of drug and protein interaction, drug’s physical property and activity, downstream biological effect of drug-target interactions, and potential therapeutic strategies against COVID-19.

    As a recently established journal, CMB ( is the formal continuation of Molecular Based Mathematical Biology, published by De Gruyter Open. The mission of CMB is to publish the highest quality work that promotes the development of theoretical formulations, mathematical models, numerical algorithms, and computational techniques for elucidating molecular mechanisms and for solving open problems at the forefront of molecular bioscience and biophysics.

    Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Drug design, screening, delivery
    • Drug repurposing
    • Structure-activity relationships
    • Molecular modeling
    • Structural biological studies
    • Pharmacokinetics & toxicology
    • Diagnostic technology
    • Therapeutic medicine
    • Host-pathogen interaction
    • Precision medicine
    • Mutation predictions
    • Vaccine development
    • Simulations and software development

    Before submission authors should carefully read over the author guidelines, which are located at All manuscripts are subject to the standard peer review process before publication. Please note the publisher has waived the Article Processing Charges for this special issue, but articles will be open-access in accordance with the overall goals of the journal.
