Interests: pharmaceutical technology, with emphasis in manufacturing processes and dosage form design
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Functional peptide-based biomaterials have been widely used in biomedical application research, including peptides that can respond to different stimuli (such as pH, redox potential, temperature, light and enzyme), self-assembly peptide hydrogels, cell penetrating peptides, affinity peptides that interact with receptors, and peptide-drug conjugates. Therefore, the intelligent and multifunctional peptide based structural system can respond to environmental stimuli, promote tissue repair and regeneration through the biomimetic extracellular matrix structure, penetrate cell membranes, induce functional effects by binding receptors, and deliver drug molecules in a single molecule, which play an important role in the research of biomedical applications. The purpose of this Special Issue of Pharmaceutics is to collect research and review papers on biomedical applications of functional peptide-based biomaterials. We welcome articles dealing with various aspects of functional peptide-based biomaterials, and invite researchers and drug developers to publish their original research or review articles, including expert opinions and perspectives in the field of biomedical applications. The topics include but are not limited to:
- Self-assembly peptide hydrogels for cell repair and regeneration;
- Environmental stimuli-responsive peptide-based biomaterials;
- Peptide drug delivery system;
- Cell penetrating peptides;
- Receptor-affinity peptides and the combinations;
- Peptide-drug conjugates in 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. Pharmaceutics 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 2900 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.
