Special Issue "Bioceramics: Materials, Properties and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 December 2020.
Interests: bone; ceramics; inflammation; in vitro; in vivo
The field of bioceramics is constantly growing. The main applications of bioceramics address the topics of drug delivery and tissue regeneration, especially for hard tissues such as teeth and bones. Thanks to new engineering approaches, the reconstruction of human tissues is becoming a reality. Yet, many fundamental problems remain to be solved for hard tissues such as bone. One of them is the requirement of adequate scaffold able to support, promote, and stimulate tissue ingrowth. New synthesis routes and functionalization, as well as original manufacturing processes, may help to overcome these limitations. Many avenues have to be explored to develop new bioceramics with properties intended to favor biological tissue regeneration. More new materials may lead to original applications for bioceramics. Therefore, this Special Issue of Materials will collect original, high-quality research papers covering the most recent advances and comprehensive reviews addressing state-of-the-art topics in the field of bioceramics materials, their properties, and their application systems for current and futuristic biomedical applications.

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.
