Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Materials, “3D Biofabrication of Scaffolds for Tissue Regeneration Applications”, will be focused on recent advances in 3D printing technologies emerging as a powerful tool in regenerative medicine, with potential applications in tissue engineering, drug discovery, and disease modeling. This issue aims to cover technologies that develop tissue and organ replacement strategies to provide a valid alternative to current existing treatments, such as organ transplants. 3D Biofabrication is a new field within materials science, engineering and biotechnology, which can potentially build a complex viable 3D engineered tissue. The objective of this issue is to gather the latest achievements from the field of tissue engineering in regard to 3D printing technologies, cell sources and bio-ink formulations for bioprinting, computational modeling for 3D printing, and applications of 3D printing in in vitro disease modeling. We here invite you to submit your research related to the subject of this issue.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
