Over the last decade, there have been tremendous advances in the field of biomedicine and implantable materials for healthcare. The use of crystalline, semi-crystalline, and amorphous bioceramics (glasses), as well as their combinations with other materials to produce complex, ingenious, and even “smart” structures, has revolutionized the surgical treatment of various diseases that primarily affect bone and teeth. Bioceramics and bioglasses are also showing great promise for use in contact with soft tissues, thus contributing to the development of new therapeutic approaches and to the significant improvement of the quality of life of an increasing number of patients.
This Special Issue covers the major areas related to the design, processing, modelling, characterization, and clinical use of biomedical ceramics and glasses, including advanced manufacturing methods, tissue-engineering scaffolds, cell-material and tissue-material interactions, biomimetic and bioinspired structures, biosensors and coatings, hierarchical systems, safety and environmental issues, and regulatory aspects.
We are then very pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Bioactive Ceramics and Glasses 2019”. Full research articles, short communications, and comprehensive review papers covering all aspects of research about bioceramics and bioglasses are 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. 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.
