The development of new biomaterial-based strategies to accelerate the repair and regeneration processes of human tissues is of utmost importance in tissue engineering approaches. In this regard, cerium-based biomaterials and nanomaterials have recently attracted great attention due to their suitable and highly interesting biological properties, including their anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial activities. As a result, there is evidence that the incorporation of cerium oxide nanoparticles (nanoceria) into implantable biomaterials and scaffolds can contribute to improving the healing processes of different hard and soft tissues.
This Special Issue will cover the latest advances related to the production, characterization, and potential clinical use of cerium-based biomaterials, including new synthesis methods, tissue-engineering scaffolds and nanoparticles, drug delivery systems, diagnostic labelling and probing, cell–material and tissue–material interactions, advanced therapies (e.g., cancer treatment), and toxicological issues.
We are very pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Biomedical Applications of Derium-Doped Materials and Nanoceria”. Full research articles, short communications, and comprehensive review papers covering all aspects of research about cerium oxide-based materials are 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. Molecules 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.
