Tissue Engineering, in the medical field, faces great challenges currently in developing research investigating new methods for available treatments, in the face of injuries, where reconstruction does not occur independently, with the objective of forming a new tissue with morphofunctional characteristics, identical to the original tissue. This research, aiming at translational medicine, takes place in an interdisciplinary way within the medical area in various pathologies. Therefore, this Special Issue seeks to confront scientific barriers with innovations in polymeric materials, from their production, development, pre-clinical and clinical studies, of natural or synthetic origin, which bring positive and beneficial effects from the bench to the bed.
This Special Issue is dedicated to reviews, meta-analyses, clinical and preclinical studies on the different uses of polymers in medicine.
