The growing pressure on today’s engineers for creative engineering design is commonplace. Along with growing social expectations for more perfect and reliable products, this fosters an environment for the interdisciplinary approach to structural, material, and technological design. When receiving a specific task to meet a clearly defined need, today’s engineer must pay attention to the shape of the element as well as to how the product will be made, thus determining the functional and operational properties of the finished product.
Modern biomaterials are entirely in line with this trend. The need for continuous development and a multilevel approach to the problems of modern medicine requires the use of advanced engineering materials.
Contemporary biomaterials combine many features, both material and functional, which must precisely meet specific needs. Obtaining this type of material and giving it the appropriate features requires the solving of numerous tasks and much research, all of which can be shared in this Special Issue. Aiming to highlight this concept, this Special Issue will focus on advanced biomaterials their modification, production, and research.
I kindly invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
