Smart biomaterials and biointerfaces have diverse structures, properties, functionalities, and applications. In recent years, the interest in smart biomaterials and biointerfaces has increased dramatically, both from the points of view of experiment and of computation. This themed Special Issue aims to cover the most recent progress in the synthesis, coating, processing and fabrication of smart biomaterials and biointerfaces, the interactions of these materials/interfaces with biomolecules, as well as the new applications of these materials.
