Biomaterials serve as an integral component of tissue engineering. They are designed to provide an architectural framework that allows for cell growth and tissue regeneration. Tissue engineering is an interdisciplinary field dedicated to the regeneration of functional human tissues. Despite the fact that the body has intrinsic self-healing properties, the extent of repair varies amongst different tissues, and may also be undermined by the severity of injury or disease.
The classic paradigm relies on a combination of biomaterial scaffolds, cells, and bioactive molecules to orchestrate tissue formation and integration within the host environment. An important avenue of tissue engineering is the development of biomaterials that can promote regenerative processes by effectively transporting cell populations and therapeutic agents, as well as providing a structural scaffolding that confers sufficient mechanical properties to tissues. Among a multitude of applications, tissues, such as bone and cartilage, skin and others, have garnered substantial interest from researchers and clinicians. Defects associated with these regions are quite prevalent in society and contribute to a diminished quality of life.
Over the years, many different processing techniques and scaffold designs have been extensively explored and have led to notable improvements in the quality of tissue engineered constructs. This Special Issue welcomes articles that discuss advances in tissue engineering. It is open for basic to clinical research as well as multi-disciplinary approaches.
We cordially invite authors to contribute original research articles or reviews that are focused on, but not limited to, the following:
- The use of biomaterials in burn care.
- Regenerative technologies: future trends.
- Tissue engineering and regenerative technologies in wound care.
- Biomaterials for bone and cartilage tissue engineering.
- Functional biomaterials for tissue engineering and regeneration.

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. Biomedicines 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 2600 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.
