Special Issue "Biomaterial Design for Disease Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020).
Interests: vaccine design and delivery; heterologous natural product biosynthesis; cellular and metabolic engineering
Interests: vaccine design and implementation; biomaterials; immunoengineering; clinical translation
In this Special Issue, we will profile research and fields dedicated to biomaterial design and application with an emphasis on infectious disease and cancer indications. In particular, topics will cover how biomaterials have accompanied knowledge associated with disease profiles to augment and extend treatment options. By doing so, a key goal is to bridge the cap between biomaterial engineering and clinical disease, spanning multiple scientific disciplines and and the steps required to bring technology to application. Thus, we encourage submissions (full papers, communications, and reviews) that provide an interdisciplinary view of biomaterial design for disease-specific application, with an emphasis on how knowledge associated with a particular design informs the engineering and application of a biomaterial product towards a more efficacious treatment.

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.
