The design of innovative biomaterials has led to outstanding success in clinical applications over the past decades, such as in orthopedics or cardiovascular surgery. This rapidly evolving field is developing the next generation of biomaterials based on new compounds, processing technologies, three-dimensional architectures or self-adaptive materials to design scaffolds with improved biological integration and function. Nanostructured surfaces, optimized interactions with stem cells or long-term drug delivery are some of these various innovations that will greatly benefit to their development.
This special issue of Materials will combine the expertise of engineers, chemists, biologists, and clinicians to present some of the most promising innovations in the development of the next generation of biomaterials in a wide variety of biological and clinical applications.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
