Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite researchers, scientists, and practitioners to contribute to our upcoming Special Issue focused on “Biomaterials for Topical Drug Delivery to the Skin and Wound Healing: New Insights”. We will explore innovative biomaterials and cutting-edge strategies that enhance the efficiency, safety, and specificity of topical drug delivery and are important for new approaches in the field of wound healing.

We invite researchers to contribute their cutting-edge work in the field of biomaterials for topical drug delivery and wound healing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following list.

Biomaterials for Topical Drug Delivery:

  • Novel biomaterials for skin penetration;
  • Advances in controlled-release systems;
  • Nanotechnology in topical drug delivery;
  • Biocompatible carriers for enhanced skin permeability;
  • Formulation strategies for improved drug stability;
  • Therapeutic breakthroughs in dermatological applications;
  • Mechanistic studies on drug interactions with skin barriers.

Wound Healing Biomaterials:

  • Advanced wound healing scaffolds;
  • Bioactive materials for tissue regeneration;
  • Immunomodulatory approaches.

Innovative Wound Dressings:

  • Antimicrobial dressings;
  • Bioresponsive dressings;
  • Scaffolds for chronic wound management.

3D Bioprinting in Dermatology:

  • Printing skin substitutes;
  • Customized tissue constructs;
  • Bioprinted models for drug testing.

Join us in exploring the latest advances in biomaterials and fostering collaboration for the development of transformative solutions in skin health. Together, let’s shape the future of topical drug delivery and wound healing.

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. Pharmaceutics 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 2900 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.
