The variety of applications of bioactive glasses in medicine has expanded tremendously over recent years. Initially developed as bioactive materials to fill bone defects and promote the healing of hard tissues in orthopaedics and dentistry, bioactive glasses have more recently proved their suitability for a range of emerging applications in contact with soft tissues. Bioactive glasses are characterized by a great versatility from the viewpoints of composition and manufacturing, on which researchers can act to develop new biomaterials and implants for tissue repair and advanced therapy (e.g. cancer treatment, drug release, antimicrobial effect). Many of these novel applications seemed impossible when research began almost 50 years ago, which suggests that the potential of bioactive glasses is still far from being fully exploited and highly motivates further research.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a picture of the latest achievements in the field of bioactive glasses, with special emphasis on novel design and synthesis approaches, characterization and manufacturing strategies, and new applications for healthcare.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full research articles, short communications and comprehensive review papers focusing on the above-mentioned topics are welcome.

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. Journal of Functional Biomaterials 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.
