Special Issue Information
Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D-printing, has revolutionized the way we think about component design, and has also opened up new pathways for creating new materials and material structures. In the field of biomaterials, it has been used to create patient-specific implant geometries and to design structures with pore sizes and shapes tailored to achieve a certain biological response, for things like bone regeneration, for example. Furthermore, additive manufacturing allows for printing complex structures containing cells directly, to obtain things like organ models or future tissue engineering. Alloys with new micro- and macrostructures resulting in stronger materials compared to traditional manufacturing are also possible to create using AM. In short, all material classes are relevant, depending on the application.
In this Special Issue, the focus is on the development, design, and characterization of additively manufactured biomaterials. This includes new polymers, ceramics, metals, as well as composites, specifically developed for use as biomaterials.

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.
