Special Issue on Microenvironment Models and Targeting Strategies

Published 06 April, 2023


This special issue presents the major advances in the field of biomaterials-based in vitro microenvironment modeling for unveiling the crosstalk between cell and microenvironment; as well as smart materials-based new strategies targeting organ, tissue and cellular microenvironments for better therapeutic outcomes.

Topics covered:

  • Design of in vitro 3D organ/tissue/cellular microenvironment models
  • Smart biofabrication and micro-/nano-devices of organ models
  • Novel materials for organoid system
  • Matrix biology in tumor microenvironments
  • Smart biomaterials-based strategies for targeting microenvironments
  • Biomaterials for delivery of bioactive cells/drugs/RNA and regulation of microenvironments

This special issue accepts articles with in vitro studies and in vivo evaluations, pre-clinical studies, clinical translation and clinical applications of biomaterials. Scientists and clinicians are encouraged to submit manuscripts with multidisciplinary contributions.

Important Deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 1 November 2023
