The concept of regenerating tissues, with properties and functions that mimic natural tissues, has attracted significant attention in recent years, as it provides potential solutions for many disease treatments and demanding healthcare problems. To fully realize the potential of the approach, it is crucial to have a rational biomaterial design and subsequent fabrication to create novel scaffolds and material systems and devices suitable for tissue engineering, repair, and regeneration. As a consequence of the intense research activity in the field, a variety of 3D and 4D biofabrication approaches has been developed, including soft lithography and self-assembly, as well as subtractive (top-down), additive (bottom-up) and hybrid manufacturing. Further research advances in the topic include the design of new and smart biomaterials, the fabrication of implantable multifunctional scaffolds and devices for disease monitoring, diagnostics and treatment, as well as the manufacturing of artificial tissues and organs.
This Special Issue on “Biofabrication for Tissue Engineering” welcomes original research and review articles in this rapidly growing field that are related to the development of biomaterial scaffolds, biomedical devices and organ-on-a-chip systems for tissue engineering applications. It will focus on all aspects of biofabrication, including design, manufacturing, functionalization, characterization, evaluation of novel scaffolds, biomedical devices and systems for tissue engineering and regeneration, aiming at disease diagnoses and treatments.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
