Bone tissue engineering, developed as an alternative to autografts and allografts, represents one of the most investigated biomedical areas. Numerous biomaterials based on synthetic and natural polymers, bioceramics, and metals have been investigated in order to replace and repair the damaged native tissues. Recent advances are also focused on 3D porous scaffold templates providing structural support for bone cells. Moreover, the addition of various growth factors, cytokines, or selected drugs (i.e., antiresorptive, anticancer, or antimicrobial drugs) may significantly improve the bone healing process.
This Special Issue focuses on the new developments in biomaterials for orthopaedic/musculoskeletal tissue engineering. Particularly, it will cover a selection of recent research topics and review articles in the field of synthesis, the physicochemical properties of new biomaterials and their composites, as well as cell-biomaterial interactions. Biomaterials for growth factors and drug delivery are also of interest.

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 1800 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.
