Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of bioengineered materials for medical applications is moving at an ever-increasing pace. This is evident in the proliferation of journals dedicated to biomaterials, nanotechnology, and regenerative medicine. Furthermore, the exponential rate at which research articles are published pertaining to these subjects, attests to the significance of this field. One of the holy grails of medicine and surgery is the replacement of damaged or diseased organs with artificially engineered ones. The development of artificial organs is a multi-disciplinary undertaking, bringing together both scientists and clinicians in their respective areas of expertise. In this Special Issue, we aim to showcase research at the interface of molecular science and regenerative therapies. We therefore invite you to submit your manuscript for this Special Issue entitled Artificial Organs.
