Biomaterials are of great clinical relevance because of their ability to stimulate the regeneration of hard tissues. Multiple cell–material interactions are involved in this process. New methods for manufacturing and modification of materials as well as the establishment of smart materials and biocompatible drug delivery substitutes can lead to adaptation of the already applicable materials as well to new biomaterials. The cellular suitability of new and modified biomaterials needs to be evaluated in preclinical in vitro and in vivo studies as well as clinical trials prior to clinical usage.
This Special Issue aims to provide new insight into the cellular compatibility of new or modified biomaterials that are designed for implantation into defects and fractures of hard tissues. Particularly, the molecular interactions of biomaterials and cells or their extracellular components will be in focus. Therefore, we welcome original research and review manuscripts that report molecular mechanisms of cells at the interface of biomaterials established for hard tissue regeneration.

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. 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 2300 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.
