Special Issue "Polymers for Medical Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: cell and tissue engineering; nanomaterials for therapeutic applications
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Synthetic polymers and nanomaterials have raised increasing interest in recent years due to their potential application in the biomedical field. Novel synthetic polymers and nanomaterials with specially designed physical or chemical properties have been developed as biopolymers, nano-scale materials, imaging tools, stimuli-responsive materials, cell culture supporting materials, and systems for drug delivery and drug depots. Such advances drive their future application in the biomedical field. This Special Issue welcomes original research articles with a focus on the synthesis and functionalization of newly synthesized biopolymer, nanomaterials, imaging tools, stimuli-responsive materials, cell culture supporting materials, and drug delivery systems for future 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.
