The concept of biomaterials emerged due to the necessity of replacing living systems. For a long time, the medical applications of biomaterials were considered based on their interactions with biological systems. Therefore, the interface and specific interactions played a vital role in the establishment of corresponding artificial systems, governing the success or failure of biological assessment. Biomaterials were a pathway to design the desired artificial systems, and for this purpose, biomaterials served as an integrated component of artificial systems, with permanent advances in nanotechnology sustaining the design of various biomaterial nanostructures with key significance of cell–biomaterial interactions at a nano-level. Today, nanotechnology has allowed biomaterials to succeed in a wide range of medical or pharmaceutical applications (tissue engineering, drug delivery, microfluidics), while the next generation of biomaterials are under development using innovative strategies. The unique developed materials aim to mimic the key features of natural biological materials, to reveal the limitation of current methodologies and materials and provide new insights for the evolution of biomaterials.
In this context, this Special Issue on “Nanotechnology: A Powerful Tool in the Scope of Tissue Engineering Domain” aims to underline novel modalities, strategies, technologies, pathways, applications, or biomaterials that are under research. Complex reviews that value the current advances and future perspectives within the biomaterials domain are encouraged.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
