Special Issue Information
Defects in wound healing after injuries or diseases related to impaired skin tissue repair, such as diabetes, aging, cancer, etc., constitute a major public health concern. Despite the progress in the field of skin biology and regeneration, we still need to better understand the mechanisms that regulate skin tissue repair to provide more adequate therapeutic options. Currently, there is huge demand for the development of reconstructed skin equivalents to serve either as grafts to restore skin barrier function after injury and to facilitate wound healing or as in vitro skin models for the study of skin mechanobiology, dysfunctional skin mechanobiology leading to disease and abnormal wound healing, toxicity and pharmaco-cosmetics testing.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect important contributions and potential breakthroughs in regenerative research and technologies for the development of in vitro skin models, skin disease simulation and the validation of pharmaceuticals/cosmetics.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Stem cells
- Tissue engineering
- 3D printing

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. Bioengineering 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.
