Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advancements in biocompatible materials for implantable medical devices have revolutionized modern healthcare, offering innovative solutions for treating a wide range of medical conditions. These materials are designed to be compatible with the body's natural systems, minimizing the risk of rejection and promoting better integration with surrounding tissues. Over the years, researchers have made significant strides in developing new materials with improved biocompatibility, mechanical properties, and functionality. These advancements have led to the development of safer, more durable, and more effective implantable devices, thereby enhancing patient outcomes and quality of life. In this context, this Special Issue on "Advancements in Biocompatible Materials for Implantable Medical Devices" will showcase the latest research and innovations in this rapidly evolving field, highlighting the transformative impact of biocompatible materials on modern healthcare. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Novel biocompatible materials for implantable medical devices;
  2. Surface modifications that improve the biocompatibility of implant materials;
  3. Nanostructured materials for enhanced biocompatibility and functionality;
  4. Composite materials that improve the mechanical properties of implants;
  5. In vitro and in vivo studies on biocompatible materials for implants;
  6. Regulatory considerations and standards for biocompatible materials in implantable devices;
  7. Clinical applications and case studies of biocompatible materials in implantable medical devices;
  8. Computational modeling and simulations of biocompatible materials for implants;
  9. Emerging trends and future directions concerning biocompatible materials for implantable medical devices.

This Special Issue welcomes all research areas related to innovative experimental and computational approaches in the development and evaluation of biocompatible materials for implantable medical devices.

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. 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 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.
