On the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8, this issue highlights some of the excellent research carried out by leading groups that are run by female researchers, as Neville Compton writes in his Editorial. In a Guest Editorial, H. Hopf et al. point out the need for cultural competence in science and a practical approach to enhancing equality, diversity, and inclusion.

M. M. Stevens et al. review cubosomes as smart lipid nanoparticles. How can they be engineered for tailor-made applications, including delivery, biosensing, and medical applications? Further reviews deal with polyoxometalates as potential metallodrugs and antitumor agents (A. Rompel et al.) as well as terahertz spectroscopy to probe ion hydration and pairing (M. Havenith et al.). In a Minireview, J. Dash et al. summarize chemical regulation of DNA i-motifs for nanobiotechnology and therapeutics.

In the Communications section, F. Shi et al. present the design and construction of axially chiral 3,3’-bisindole skeletons (see picture). S. Osuna et al. found hidden conformations in Aspergillus niger monoamine oxidase to be key for catalytic efficiency. F. H. Arnold et al. describe enantioselective aminohydroxylation of styrenyl olefins catalyzed by an engineered hemoprotein, and E. Hey-Hawkins et al. gained access to 1-phospha-2-azanorbornenes by phospha-aza-Diels–Alder reactions.
