Special Issue Information
The main goal of this Special Issue is to provide a comprehensive collection of the most recent advances in research related to the biopolymers, either natural or synthetic, as well as their applications in medical and pharmaceutical fields. Biopolymers and their composites attract special attention due to their unique properties, biocompatibility, versatility, and flexible nature. Thus, its potential application is constantly expanding. Biopolymers can be prepared into various forms such as micro/nanoparticles, 3D scaffolds, hydrogels, and films, or they can be combined with other materials (composites) depending on the application demands. This Special Issue on biopolymers used for medical and pharmaceutical applications will bring together experts from materials science, chemistry, biology, pharmacy, medicine, physics, nanotechnology, etc., to review the current state of the art and to express outstanding research needs related to this topic. Types of manuscripts to be featured include reviews, original research articles, and perspectives. Multidisciplinary research relating to advances in the production, characterization, and applications of biopolymers, as well as the design of effective drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, wound healing, cell therapy, and other themes not limited to this, is welcomed.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
