Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Most cells and drugs require appropriate formulation for their successful application as pharmaceuticals. The use of polymer-based hydrogel biomaterials for the delivery of drugs and recruitment of cells to promote tissue regeneration in the body is of growing interest. This Topic will invite original research and review articles focusing primarily on the principles and strategies employed for the design, formulation, characterization, evaluation, and translation of novel injectable hydrogels for pharmaceuticals and tissue engineering applications. It will accomplish this by discussing and/or presenting recent innovative advances in polymers, their building blocks, and the engineering chemistries for their formation, whether by chemical crosslinking reactions or physical interactions. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • drug delivery hydrogels
  • pharmacokinetics in hydrogels
  • stimuli-responsive polymers
  • natural polymers
  • hydrogel nanoparticles
  • injectable hydrogels
  • drug encapsulation
  • dynamic hydrogels
  • sustained drug release
  • targeted drug delivery

Preprints.org is a multidiscipline platform providing preprint service that is dedicated to sharing your research from the start and empowering your research journey.

MDPI Topics is cooperating with Preprints.org and has built a direct connection between MDPI journals and Preprints.org. Authors are encouraged to enjoy the benefits by posting a preprint at Preprints.org prior to publication:

  1. Immediately share your ideas ahead of publication and establish your research priority;
  2. Protect your idea from being stolen with this time-stamped preprint article;
  3. Enhance the exposure and impact of your research;
  4. Receive feedback from your peers in advance;
  5. Have it indexed in Web of Science (Preprint Citation Index), Google Scholar, Crossref, SHARE, PrePubMed, Scilit and Europe PMC.
