Nanocomposite coatings are vital for a wide range of biomedical engineering applications as they can mitigate, transform, and modulate the bio-interface formed between the biomedical device and the targeted tissue. A good bio-interface can maintain the proper functions of the biomedical device, enhance the designated functions of the biomedical device, and provide customized functions depending on the final applications. The key to a successful nanocomposite coating for biomedical applications may be linked to the strategy for designing coatings with rational composition, microstructure, interface, function, module, and configuration. On the other hand, the realization and application of new ideas and technologies may bring forth advanced nanocomposite coatings with unprecedented structures, interfaces, and functions.
We are pleased to invite you to submit your valuable research outputs to this Special Issue. This Special Issue aims to cover the material design, property characterization, processing, bio-interface, and biomedical applications of advanced nanocomposite coatings for biomedical engineering. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. The themes of this Special Issue may include but are not limited to the following:
- Antibacterial coatings with superwettability;
- Nanostructured coatings for tissue-electronic interfaces;
- Multifunctional hybrid hydrogel coatings;
- Nanoparticle coatings for photothermal therapy;
- Conductive polymer coatings for neural interfacing;
- Lipid nanoparticles and microcapsules for mRNA therapy.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Coatings 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.
