Special Issue "Bio-Inspired Biodegradable Scaffold Constructs for Bone Tissue Repair"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: Bone; Biomaterials; Dental implant; Oral surgery
The global scenario seeks support from the world of research to create new technologies, approaches, and methodologies that are able to address the future community’s needs. The progressive aging of the population is increasing the demand for new strategies to treat chronic diseases, and bone tissue will have a starring role as its physiological or pathological decline is accompained by psycological, behavioural, and social challenges.
This Special Issue will focus on new advancements in the synthesis, characterization, and biological as well as clinical behaviour of bioinspired biodegradable bone constructs in translational studies embracing the fourth industrial revolution and aiming at identifying new trends and manufacturing smart technologies, personalized materials, and applications.
The Issue invites papers that will cover original research and comprehensive review articles on materials derived from and structured on nature and their applications. It will expand into the design and development of functional devices integrating cyber-physical systems at different hierachical levels throughout the manufacturing process, and of computational models to create algorithms. Articles combining materials science, engineering, chemistry, biology, and technologies to enhance the translation to the clinic of promising approaches will have priority.Dr. Vittoria Perrotti

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. 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 1800 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.
