Many advances in the field of medicine are strongly corelated with the use of nanomaterials thus, an important topic/science is establishing namely, NANOMEDICINE. Nowadays, Nanomaterials are exploited in many applications such as diagnosis and treatment, as they are able to induce antimicrobial, antitumoral activity, and hyperthermia or can assure internalisation or targeting capabilities, can act as a smart carrier of a wide range of biologically active agents, etc.
Manuscripts dealing with nanomaterials belonging to the following classes are especially welcome: Metal and oxide nanoparticles, micro and mesoporous materials, carbonaceous materials, phosphates, etc. Topics relating to composite materials designed and manufactured by modern additive manufacturing methods for tissue engineering are also welcome. 3D-printing, electrospinning and electrospraying, atomic layer deposition (ALD), spin coating, matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE), and pulsed-laser deposition (PLD) are only some of the processing techniques which are able to generate nanomaterials with 0D, 1D, 2D, or even 3D structures. Short-, medium-, and long-term (nano)toxicity, multifunctionality, and personalized therapy are essential aspects of the modern medicine thus, manuscripts dealing with any or more such aspects will be encouraged.

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.
