    About the Special Issue

    Regenerative medicine is an interdisciplinary field that aims to develop innovative approaches for tissue repair and replacement. The field encompasses diverse disciplines such as biology, medicine, material science, and engineering to overcome the limitations of traditional medical interventions. One of the key challenges in regenerative medicine is to design and develop materials that can support cellular functions and promote tissue regeneration.

    Bioinspired materials have emerged as promising candidates for regenerative medicine due to their ability to mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM) and provide a favorable microenvironment for cells to grow and differentiate. These materials can be synthesized from natural or synthetic polymers, or a combination of both, to create a scaffold that can provide mechanical support to the tissue while promoting cell adhesion, proliferation, and differentiation. The incorporation of bioactive molecules such as growth factors or cytokines can further enhance the regenerative potential of these materials.

    Bioinspired materials have been widely investigated for tissue engineering, wound healing, drug delivery, and other regenerative medicine applications. For example, scaffolds made of biodegradable polymers such as polycaprolactone or poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) have been used for bone tissue engineering due to their ability to degrade over time and be replaced by new tissue. Similarly, hydrogels made of natural polymers such as chitosan or alginate have been investigated for wound healing due to their adhesive and antimicrobial properties.

    This special issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest research and development in the area of bioinspired materials for regenerative medicine. We welcome submissions covering a broad range of topics such as the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of bioinspired materials, biocompatibility, degradation properties, and commercial translation.
