Interests: design and processing of nanoscale macromolecular biomaterials for biomedical applications
The design and development of multifunctional nanoscale devices able to interface with biological processes are centered in current nanotechnology. Nanomaterials based on synthetic and naturally-occurring polymers as block copolymer micelles, hydrogels, and nanogels have offered a broad choice of materials for targeted drug delivery, cellular imaging platforms, or regenerative medicine. Any topics focusing on "Polymer nanotechnology: Synthesis and Applications in Biomedical Imaging, Drug Delivery, and Tissue Engineering" will fit to this special issue entitled "Advances in Nanoscale Biomaterials".

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.
