The emergence of biofabrication technology and its related novel concepts such as 3D and 4D bioprinting has allowed us to fabricate and mimic complex native tissues. Numerous studies have since been reported attempting to recreate native tissues by searching for the best printing parameters and conditions. The parameters vary vastly from the suitability of the biomaterials, scaffold geometry, physical and biological stimulations, and the application of biochemical and biological cues, to searching for the optimal printing conditions. The goal of such tissue engineering is to fabricate complex tissue-like structures for tissue regeneration and personalized treatments such as drug screening and toxicological studies. Of the many parameters involved in bioprinting, the biomaterial plays a huge role in determining the feasibility of constructs for tissue engineering. Biomaterial biocompatibility allows for high cell viability and high retention of growth factors whilst the structural stability and geometry of the printed constructs allows specific cellular proliferation and differentiation. Many studies have attempted to explore suitable biomaterials for various applications by modifying and tuning the characteristics of various biomaterials. Therefore, this Issue is mainly focused on the various novel modifications of biomaterials used for tissue engineering and it is hoped that such a collection of articles could be used as a platform for future brainstorming.

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. Processes 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1500 CHF applies. 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.
