Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nature has provided incredible sources for biogenic materials and inspiration for the design of novel bioinspired materials for various applications in biomedicine and bioengineering. Such applications include the development of unique optical, sensing, electronic and structural materials and devices, biofunctional surface coatings, bioimaging, drug delivery, tissue regeneration, and theory and computation applications.

This Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, short communications, and comprehensive review articles that deal with cutting-edge experimental and computational methodologies for applications of bioinspired and biogenic materials in the field of biomedicine and bioengineering. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Fabrications of optical, sensing, electronic and structural devices based on bioinspired and biogenic materials;
  • Biomaterials for the delivery of therapeutic and biological cues;
  • Bioinspired materials and their immunomodulatory interactions;
  • Antimicrobial surface coatings;
  • Novel design of biomaterials for tissue regeneration;
  • Bioinspired and biogenic materials for bioimaging;
  • Theoretical and computational guidance for the design of biomaterials and devices, including machine learning applications in biomedicine and bioengineering;

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. We look forward to receiving your submissions!

Dr. Xiang Ma
Guest Editor

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.
