Special Issue Information
Over the last several years, engineering technologies and bioengineered systems have been used to investigate the physical properties of reproductive tissues, study the dynamics of gametogenesis, and integrate multitissue systems. The purpose of this Special Issue is to identify recent advancements in reproductive biology and regenerative medicine through bioengineering. Topics for publication include the use of engineered microenvironments or materials to interrogate the molecular mechanisms or physiology of reproductive organs or cells, the use of microfluidics to integrate multiple tissues and support gamete quality selection or fertilization, and the use of engineering technologies to characterize the physical properties of reproductive tissues.
Original research submissions are highly encouraged, and review articles that focus on research from the last five years as well as conceptualize the promise of future contributions to understanding reproductive biology and supporting future innovations in regenerative medicine will also be considered.
Dr. Monica M Laronda
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.
