This special issue of Processes will consider papers in the general area of Design of Bioreactor Systems for Tissue Engineering. The objective of this issue is to showcase the diversity and advances in research that contributes to developing effective systems for the culture and controlled differentiation of stem cells, or the combination of cells and biomaterials into functional tissue. There are a range of topics that contribute to “bioreactor systems” that include the following: cell culture and differentiation, culture on or in 3D scaffolds, bioprocessing considerations such as scale-up and monitoring and control, bioreactor design, membranes and other perfusion systems, co-culture, adherent or suspension cell culture, mathematical models, in vitro models, nutrient diffusion and mass transfer in 3D, fluid dynamics and shear.
We are particularly interested in receiving manuscripts that integrate biology and engineering research and/or experimental and theoretical studies. We invite researchers and practitioners from all areas of regenerative medicine to submit manuscripts for this important special issue of Processes.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
