Special Issue "Nanoscale Materials and Technologies in Tissue Engineering"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Interests: tissue regeneration; biomaterials; regenerative medicine; nanoelectronics/engineered tissue hybrids; smart delivery systems
In tissue engineering, cells are seeded in 3D biomaterial scaffolds, which provide mechanical support for the growing tissue, as well as biochemical and topographical cues for assembly and function. The desire to closely recapitulate the natural cellular microenvironment and improve tissue function has led researchers to incorporate nanoscale features within the fabricated scaffolds.
The scope of this Special Issue covers nanotechnological advances in tissue engineering. These include technologies for mimicking nanostructures of the extracellular matrix, and the use of inorganic nanoparticles and devices for improving, monitoring and regulating tissue function.
We look forward to receive your valuable contributions to this exciting Special Issue.

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.
