This Special Issue, entitled “Nano/Micro-Assisted Regenerative Medicine”, will focus on recent research developments in regenerative medicine using nanotechnology. We welcome review articles, commentaries, and experimental papers applicable to the Special Issue.
The widespread use of the term regenerative medicine is attributed to William A. Haseltine (founder of Human Genome Sciences). Since then, there have been many research studies related to regenerative medicine. The basic concept of “Nano/Micro-Assisted Regenerative Medicine” is to use engineered nanostructures, alone or in combination with specific cells, such as stem cells, to replace, augment or regenerate human tissues/organs to make them functional. The rise of advanced nanotechnology provided breakthrough in this field, as it opened wide applications in tissue engineering, and imaging areas, addressing various limitations in the field. Thus, concepts and discoveries from the nano/micro- bio research provide exciting opportunities in using cells for regeneration of tissues and organs. The Special Issue will focus on recent advances of stem- and tissue-cell engineering/drug delivery/imaging fields. New nanomaterials, animal models, and clinical trials for various diseases are highly appreciated. In addition, the combination of nano and micro technology for vision restoration, skin and bone regeneration and understanding their clinical outcomes are also welcome.

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. 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.
