Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanoparticles have attracted considerable attention owing to their many unique biofunctional, antibacterial, magnetic, electrical, mechanical, optical, and catalytic properties different from their bulk counterparts. Those designed nanoparticles with precisely engineered properties have inspired material scientists to develop novel synthetic routes and fully exploit their use in various applications. Three-dimensional bioprinting is a rapidly evolving industry that has the potential to reshape regenerative medicine. By manipulating bioinks comprised of living cells and a variety of biomaterials, complex functional tissues can be generated. Recent studies have combined functionalized nanoparticles into bioinks to help bioprint intricate and multifunctional constructs, bringing the process one step closer to organ printing. However, both the fields of nanoparticle synthesis and bioprint expose many scientific and technological challenges. Insufficient scientific understandings and inadequate technology limit the development of advanced nanoparticles and bioprinting, therefore many promising applications are underexplored from academic and industrial perspectives. This Special Issue aims to promote and compile recent advances in the design, synthesis, characterization, manufacturing, theoretical analysis, and versatile applications of nanoparticles or bioprinting. Possible areas in both fundamental studies and potential applications of nano-synthesis or bioprint technologies, such as photonics, electronics, optics, and environmental and biomedical applications, including building blocks for advanced materials and functional nanodevices, will be considered.

This Special Issue focuses on state-of-the-art nanomaterials synthesis and bioprint strategies to solve critical challenges in engineering and medicine. Therefore, original research articles (full papers and short communications), reviews, mini reviews, perspectives, and opinions covering the latest studies and progress are highly welcomed.

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. Bioengineering 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 1700 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.
