A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.
Biointerface, defined by interconnections and intercommunications between natural or synthetic materials in living systems (e.g., cells, tissues, and organs), takes the central stage in regulating the multiscale biological states, structures, and functions that are fundamental for life and health. Deep understanding and rational manipulation of biointerface through engineering is an essential paradigm for advancing regenerative therapeutics. This requires seamless integration of a broad spectrum of research fields, including biology, materials science, physics, mechanics, computer science, mechatronics and robotics, which altogether forge new milestones towards organ regeneration.
To highlight recent progress and emerging trends on biointerface engineering (at molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, or organismal levels) for regenerative medicine, Cell Regeneration is inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on “Engineering biointerface for organ regeneration”.
We will especially welcome Research, Method and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Engineering biointerface for stem cell manufacturing
- Engineering biointerface for stem cell fate control
- Engineering biointerface for reconstructing tissue and organ complexity
- Active scaffolds for guided regeneration
- Engineering biointerface for immunomodulation and regeneration
- Engineering biointerface for neuromodulation and regeneration
- Engineered cells for tissue and organ regeneration
- Artificial tissues and organs with engineered biointerface
- Organ-on-a-chip models of tissue regeneration
