Scope: This section combines inter- and multidisciplinary principles across the biological, physical and chemical sciences. It focuses on the development of tools, functional substitutes and clinical strategies that repair, regenerate, preserve, or develop tissue or organ function. The section considers articles on the development of functional biomaterials, cell-assembled systems, biofabrication methods, nanomedical devices/implants, diagnostic systems, regenerative medicine therapies, drug-discovery/delivery methods, responsive systems, as well as 2D/3D tissue growth. Articles on scalability/robustness aspects and the industrial application of tissue engineering are strongly encouraged. Manuscripts focusing on stem cell biology, describing an application on a relevant clinical setting are welcome.
