Biomaterials have drawn significant interest in the area of drug delivery, therapeutics, diagnostics, and tissue engineering, as well as classical biomedical implants. The field of biomaterials can be the design, synthesis, and study of natural or synthetic materials, to either detect disease or to repair, restore or replace the lost function. While such materials have been around since the beginning of medicine, continuous improvements over the past decades have been in the understanding of how the body interacts with those materials led to the progression of this field from laboratory to clinic.
Owing to the growing demand of latest advances of materials technologies in healthcare engineering, we welcome and invite the authors to submit original research articles/reviews/letter to editors for our inaugural special issue under the umbrella of Innovative Biomaterials for Functional Tissue Regeneration and Drug Delivery
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Drug Delivery: Applications include cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, inflammation, and ophthalmological diseases. Tissue Engineering: Scaffold based biomaterials, stem cells and biomolecule delivery approaches to create new tissues and applications include skin, cartilage cardiovascular, orthopedic and neural tissues. Nanomedicine: Nano and micro platforms capable of delivering therapeutics. Biomedical Implants: Bio-inspired approaches to develop new categories of biomaterials mimic their biological environment and are capable of changing to meet the clinical need. Other relevant field of biomaterials those are not included in the list.
