Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will look at the interface between the emerging and fast-evolving fields of biomimetic materials and regenerative medicine. Among the subjects covered, papers could present novel synthetic or natural materials with the potential to enhance stem cell-based approaches for tissue modelling, engineering, or repair. Evidence from both in vitro and in vivo studies is welcome, including but not limited to 3D cell and tissue modelling, cell–material interactions, and innovative imaging approaches. Stem cell models considered can include human, animal, embryonic, tissue-derived, and pluripotent or progenitor-like cells, and may also extend to cancer stem cells if related to a biological outcome.

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. Biomimetics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
