Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The research field of functional biomaterials is evolving rapidly as emerging technological discoveries and innovations are considered for and often translated into medical applications. In order to be considered for use in humans, any biomaterial needs to be proven safe, and when medical devices are made up of multiple materials, demonstrating the implant’s biocompatibility can be a very difficult task. Therefore, an appropriate method to assess the safety and tolerance of an implant made up of one or several biomaterials is to measure the host’s immune response.

This Special Issue will include papers related to recent developments in the field of medical applications of functional biomaterials. Topics will include, but are not limited to, the following: biocompatibility; immune response in medical implants; advances in dental implant biomaterials; applications of nanoparticles; and natural materials with medical applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Journal of Functional Biomaterials 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 2700 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.
