Both natural and synthetic polymers represent the largest and the most versatile class of materials. In recent years, polymeric materials have constituted an important class of biomedical materials and are used in a variety of biomedical applications including drug delivery systems, wound healing, polymers with antibacterial properties, and tissue engineering. Polymeric materials can be designed to act as substitutes for the structure and function of body components. This adaptability to deliver a lardge range of effective therapies is mainly attributed to the fact that polymers can be designed with a wide variety of structures and appropriate physical, chemical and surface properties.
This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in natural and synthetic polymeric materials with desired physical, chemical, biological, biomechanical and degradation properties to match the various requirements of specific biomedical applications. Discussion of the manufacturing of the advanced polymeric materials and their application in the biomedical field is also welcome.
It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full research papers, short communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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.
