Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Functional polymers have been designed to have specific properties, such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, stimuli-responsiveness, and bioactivity, that make them useful in biomedical applications. Functional polymers are used in a wide variety of biomedical applications including drug delivery, biosensors, tissue engineering, therapeutic agents, bioimaging, and medical devices.

Functional polymers are a promising new class of materials that have the potential to revolutionize the way that we treat diseases and injuries. As our understanding of these materials continues to grow, we can expect to see even more innovative applications in the years to come. This Special Issue, "Functional Polymer Applications in Biomedicine", aims to collect articles or reviews related to the research and applications of functional polymers in biomedicine, including but not limited to drug delivery applications. We welcome all scholars to submit their papers.

Dr. Gagandeep Kaur
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Polymers 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 2700 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.
