Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Healthcare is one of the areas that has benefited the most from recent advances in advanced 3D printing (additive manufacturing) techniques. An increasing number of researchers and clinicians are studying the various ways through which 3D printing could be used for advancing biomedical research and improving currently available clinical treatments. This Special Issue, which is already the second on this topic, will present some of the best research currently performed in those directions. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Additively manufactured (i.e., 3D printed) medical devices including implants, medical instruments, prosthetics, and orthotics
  • Tissue and organ printing
  • 3D printed drugs and drug delivery systems
  • Bioprinting of tissue analogs and disease models
  • Additive manufacturing of biomaterials
  • Pre- and post-processing of 3D printed medical devices and biomaterials including surface bio-functionalizations and coatings
  • Patient-specific solutions enabled by 3D printing
  • Hybrid (i.e., combined additive and subtractive) manufacturing, indirect additive manufacturing, and other novel fabrication techniques for biomedical applications.
  • Evaluation of the biological and clinical performance of 3D printed biomaterials, tissues, organs, and medical devices.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
