Special Issue "Bioprinting 2021"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021) | Viewed by 3325
3D bioprinting is defined as the development of complex living and non-living biological constructs from materials including living cells, extracellular matrices, and biomaterials (also known as bioiniks). In the short term, bioprinting technology is essential for developing highly predictive living tissue-based technologies for drug discovery, and complex in vitro models of human diseases. In the long term, bioprinting can potentially contribute to the development of novel biotechnologies for organ transplants, gene therapy, smart drug delivery systems and biomimetic devices. Consequently, the wide range of potential applications of bioprinting strongly suggests that this emerging technology will become a new paradigm for 21st century manufacturing and biotechnology.
This special issue covers all aspects of 3D bioprinting technology with emphasis on the recent advances in the development and optimization of printhead technologies and bioinks. Topics covered include but not limited to printhead technogies, bioinks, pre-bioprinting, post-bioprinting, biofabrication window, emerging applications of 3D bioprinting technology.

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. Micromachines 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.
