Special Issue "Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
Interests: biomaterials; drug delivery; microfluidic devices; biosensors
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Recently, the emerging field of biomaterials has received a significant amount of attention that has boosted research and development. As a result, many different biomaterials, both naturally occurring and synthetic, have been prepared and manufactured for various potential tissue engineering applications, particularly as tissue engineering scaffolds and drug delivery vehicles. However, translational research that closely links biomaterial and tissue engineering research with real clinical applications is still elusive. In this Special Issue, manuscripts that address basic biomaterial synthesis or processing methods with demonstrated translational potential for real clinical applications are particularly solicited.
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
New biomaterial synthesis and fabrication methods, delivery systems for both drugs and cells to achieve therapeutic effects using biomaterials as delivery vehicles, biomaterials and nanomaterials for tissue engineering applications, particularly in non-invasive and multimodal imaging applications, and novel tissue engineering scaffolds prepared using 3D bioprinting techniques or other methods.

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 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.
