Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regenerative medicine (RM) is a broad interdisciplinary field of medical sciences that deals with the possibilities to repair and regenerate damaged tissues and organs applying various technologies and approaches, with the use of biomaterials. Tissue engineering (TE) enables the replacement of damaged tissues and organs with new ones by combining cells, stimulating (inductive, instructive) factors and biomaterials such as scaffolds or carriers. TE interdisciplinary incorporates principles of biology, medicine, materials science, chemistry and engineering to create functional substitutes that mimic the structure and function of natural tissues. Research in the field of biomaterials has significantly advanced the fields of RM and TE. Important prerequisites for the biomaterial to be implanted are its biocompatibility and biofunctionality. Biomaterials used in tissue regeneration should enable the adhesion, migration, proliferation and differentiation of cells, i.e., they should mimic the natural structure of the extracellular matrix and represent a physiological microenvironment for normal cellular functions. Moreover, they should have adequate biodegradability properties to facilitate the formation and growth of new tissue.

This Special Issue seeks quality original research and review articles that highlight new insights into the fundamental cellular and molecular interactions with biomaterials for use in RM and TE, as well as the tissue and immune system responses to these biomaterials. Studies (in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo; preclinical and clinical) with new biomaterials that have been developed as implants, scaffolds, carriers and medical devices for use in therapeutic, diagnostic and other medical purposes are welcome. Submissions with considerations about materials of natural and synthetic origin, polymers, membranes, ceramics, composites and nanomaterials, especially if they are made with integrated bioactive components and as 3D printing and intelligent materials are welcome as well. We look forward to your contribution to this Special Issue, working on the development, improvement and advancement of the design and applications of biomaterials that push the boundaries of biological and medical possibilities.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
