Special Issue Information
The innovation in nanomaterials in several forms, structures, compositions, and applications has seen exponential growth over the past 10 years, and has been gaining more confidence in industry for the design and fabrication of biomedical devices that can be used as drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, and bioelectronic devices such as biosensors or organic solar cells. The choice and adequation of the optimal nanomaterial for a specific application with a cost-effective manufacturing process have been the objective of an increasing number of scientists worldwide. Additionally, the construction of nanostructures has increased many advantageous characteristics of conventional biomaterials by stimulating their bioactivity due to the accessibility of many tissues or increasing their surface area, leading to a higher load of a bioactive component, among other impacts. One example is the use of the electrospinning technique, which allows the fabrication of three-dimensional fibrous nanostructures that simulate tissue’s extracellular matrix, which promotes cell proliferation. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers and review articles that focus on novel methodological developments in nano-scale fabrication, novel synthesis processes, chemical compositions, nanostructures, coatings, or bioactivity and tissue response in the fields of the application of tissue engineering, drug delivery systems, and biomedical devices.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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.
