Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Surface modification for the development of advanced materials for biomedical applications holds significant importance within the field of materials science, and it plays an important role in enhancing the performance, biocompatibility, and functionality of materials used in various medical applications. Tailoring materials for biomedical applications by surface modification involves altering the outer layer of materials to enhance their performance, biocompatibility, and interaction with biological systems. Furthermore, designing coatings with suitable surface properties for biomedical application is a multidisciplinary area of study that aims to combine principles from various fields such as materials science, chemistry, biology, and engineering. It endeavours to develop creative solutions for medical challenges through the exploration of cutting-edge techniques and materials, with the goal of improving the performance and biocompatibility of advanced materials and coatings in diverse biomedical applications. This Special Issue is open to all fields of expertise that can contribute original research and comprehensive reviews that provide relevant information about surface modification for the development of advanced materials and coatings for biomedical applications. The research interest of this special issue will be oriented towards the surface modification as well as fundamental and functional properties of surfaces and interfaces, designing or refining processes for coating deposition and modification for obtaining advanced materials for biomedical applications. Moreover, the special issue will welcome topics regarding the development of advanced materials by surface modifications as well as the development of modification of thin films with suitable surface properties for biomedical applications.
