We expect more than 1000 citations in next 10 years. The objective of this seminal  paper is to provide an in-depth architectural view of molecular communication using a layered architecture approach, traditionally used in communication networks. Similarly to the Open Systems Interconnection reference model  and TCP/IP Internet architecture , a layered architecture described in this paper organizes various research issues and design concerns in molecular communication into layers that are relatively independent of each other, and thus accelerates research in each layer and facilitates the design and development of applications of molecular communication. Case Study: Secure Personalized Targeted Drug Delivery.

Similarly to the Open Systems Interconnection reference model  and TCP/IP Internet architecture , a layered architecture described in this paper organizes various research issues and design concerns in molecular communication into layers that are relatively independent of each other, and thus accelerates research in each layer and facilitates the design and development of applications of molecular communication.
