Call for Papers: (Nano)-materials for Biomedical Applications

Focus Issue: Journal of Materials Research

(Nano)-materials for Biomedical Applications
Issue date: June 2019
Submission deadline: November 1, 2018

Nanotechnology has been responsible for an unprecedented positive impact in healthcare advances, by merging fundamental and applied sciences as complementary tools envisioning an enhanced quality of life. Recently, a broader spectrum of high performance nanomaterials and material-based nanosystems has been engineered to address challenges in medical and health-related fields. At the same time, there has been a shift in importance from designing exclusively bioinert materials to instead producing complex bioactive building blocks for mimicking targeted functions. This JMR Focus Issue is devoted to the latest advances in biomedical nanomaterials, including: different fabrication approaches and applications, (ii) design and characterization of novel biomedical materials and devices as well as their structure-property relationships with biological responses, and (iii) novel (bio)-nanomaterials as potential candidates to integrate multifunctional devices targeting self-assembly materials.

Contributing papers are solicited in the following areas:

• Nanotechnology and drug delivery
• Biocompatible materials
• Implants and coatings
• Tissue engineering and regenerative materials
• Fabrication of sensors and biosensors
• Biomimetics
• Materials for medical devices
• Materials in clinical dentistry
• Materials in orthopedics and biomechanics
