Polymeric materials are of great importance because of their relatively low cost synthesis; developed methods of fabrication; and wide range of physical, chemical, and biomedical properties. The great diversity of natural (proteins, polysaccharides, and nucleic acids), bio-based, and synthetic polymers as well as their copolymers is at the cutting edge of multi- and inter-disciplinary research. The fabrication of nanostructures, including nanofibers, nanofilms, and nanoparticles, from polymers is necessary for tissue engineering and bionanotechnology.
Further elucidation and evaluation of the currently available synthetic and natural polymers, their hybrids, and novel materials are required for a comprehensive analysis of their stability, cellular uptake, acute and chronic toxicity, induction of innate and adaptive immunity and allergic complications for their possible implementation in bionanotechnology, vaccinology, drug design, and tissue engineering.
This Special Issue, “Polymeric Material for Biomedical Applications”, will include selected research and review articles describing both the advantages and disadvantages of already known and novel polymers for biomedical applications.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
