New Biomaterials in Drug Delivery and Wound Care

Description

Biological organisms evolve within specific conditions and constraints in their environment, giving rise to elegant and efficient strategies for fabricating materials that often outperform man-made materials of similar composition. Synthesizing and engineering novel bioinspired materials with similar characteristics require in-depth understanding of the properties, composition, self-assembly, and hierarchical organization of biological materials.

These biomaterials are becoming increasingly incorporated into the medical sector, for example, as transport vehicles in drug delivery or as skin and soft tissue substitutes in wound management.

We invite authors to submit original research articles about new biomaterials and biotechnologies with direct clinical applications in the interconnected fields of wound care and drug formulation, encapsulation, and transport. Review articles are also welcome if they present a synthesis of new approaches in these fields.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Wound care systems: thrombosis and hemostasis
  • Biosynthetic wound dressings: acellular and cellular biomaterial matrices
  • Drug delivery systems: bioimmobilization and nanoencapsulation
  • Drug delivery systems: drug formulation (e.g., for cancer treatment) and drug release
