Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural bone is a hard and dense connective tissue which facilitates movement, provides structural support, and protects various organs. Bone loss due to diseases or injuries can cause a lower quality of life, massive health care costs, and economic burdens. The poor clinical outcomes of autografts, allografts, and metal-based mega prostheses demand the use of a synthetic biomaterial-based approach in order to generate a robust and durable solution in the aid of bone regeneration. There is an unmet challenge in terms of the design and fabrication of complex, hierarchical, and patient-specific biomaterials for bone regeneration.

Therefore, this Special Issue, titled “New Advances in Biomaterials and Bone Regeneration: Updates and Future Directions”, aims to collate new and original experimental and theoretical research, as well as comprehensive reviews, that integrate the current knowledge of multifunctional biomaterials for bone regeneration. The topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Bioinspired and biomimetic materials for bone regeneration;
  • Synthesis and characterization of novel ceramic, metallic, polymeric, and composite biomaterials for bone tissue engineering applications;
  • Microstructure-based constitutive models for biomaterial design;
  • The stability and degradation of biomaterials under physiologic conditions;
  • Cell–biomaterial interactions in vitro;
  • Mechanical characterization of biomaterials;
  • In vivo performances of biomaterials;
  • Novel techniques for the characterization and simulation of biomaterial properties;
  • The fabrication of biomaterials with bone-inspired hierarchical microstructures;
  • Reports on clinical trials of biomaterial performance.

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 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.
