Special Issue Information
In the past decade, the impact of functional materials on biomedical engineering has seen a dramatic increase. Attributed to the efforts of materials scientists, various promising materials and devices that possess unique biological properties and functions have been developed, such as piezoelectric materials, pyroelectric materials, triboelectric materials, bionic materials, self-healing materials, biodegradable materials, hydrogels, stretchable/flexible devices, and electronic skin. These functional materials have been widely studied and used in energy harvesting from organisms, blood glucose sensing, pulse sensing, human motion detection, cardiac pacing, nerve stimulation, electrocardiographic monitoring, electroencephalogram monitoring, electrophysiological monitoring, wireless monitoring of vital signs, etc. The continuous development of functional materials enables scientists and technicians in biomedical engineering to yield more and more valuable achievements for human health and life sciences. Meanwhile, due to advances in nanotechnology and electrical science, wearable/implantable bioelectronics and biosensors have evolved to become miniaturized, multifunctional, soft, and smart, creating new demands for functional materials.
This Special Issue aims to highlight recent achievements in the development of functional materials for bioelectronics and biosensors. It is my pleasure to invite you to submit your work in the form of either preliminary communications, original research articles or reviews.

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 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. 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 2300 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.
