Nanofibrous architectures are key structural and functional elements in a wide array of biological systems. As a result, there are increasing efforts to replicate these structural motifs as biomedical scaffolds for tissue regeneration, in vitro cell culture, medical device coatings, and tissue sealants. Naturally-derived, synthetic, and self-assembling fibrous nanostructures are being used to create open fibrous scaffolds, embedded fiber networks within a matrix phase, and a variety of more complex arrangements.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will survey progress and challenges and present the current state-of-the-art in the use of chemistry and engineering to create nanofibrous scaffolds for biomedical applications. For this effort, we have invited contributions from leading groups in the field with the aim of giving a balanced view of the current status and future prospects within this field of research.

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. Nanomaterials 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.
