Special Issue "Electronic Devices for Biomedical Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018).
Bioelectronics comprise the development and study of electronic devices that operate as transducers between the signals and functions of biology, and those of conventional electronic processing systems. Bioelectronic devices can be used to regulate the physiology of cells, tissues, and organs in a chemically-specific manner. In addition, they can also be applied to living systems to selectively sense, record, and monitor different signals and physiological states, as well as convert relevant parameters into electronic readout for further processing and decision making.
A Special Issue of the journal of Micromachines will be dedicated to highlight the field of bioelectronic devices. In this Special Issue, we seek to explore emergent electronic, optoelectronic, and mechanical devices that can couple to biology more efficiently. These devices will be used to develop the next-generation of biointerfaces for fundamental studies in biology and for wearable and implantable medical devices.
Prospective authors are invited to submit research contributions representing original and previously unpublished work. High quality critical reviews will be also considered for publication. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- In vivo integration of soft, flexible and biodegradable electronics for medical implants
- Devices designed to analyse the status of living cells
- Integration of biological materials in micro/nano devices
- Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) for biomedical applications
- Point of care test devices for health monitoring
- Devices and energy harvesting solutions for wearable technologies
Authors should follow the Micromachines manuscript format, as described in the Information for Authors.

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. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
