Molecular Engineering and Regenerative Medicine

SI banner

The Science Partner Journal BMEF (BME Frontiers) is now considering submissions for a special issue, Molecular Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.


Molecular engineering in medicine is a bottom-up approach to making functional materials and devices for biomedical diagnosis and therapy development. It is highly interdisciplinary, bridging physical sciences, biology, engineering, and medical sciences. Recent advances in this field, such as the development of COVID-19 vaccines, genetically modified organ transplants and other forms of tissue engineering, stem-cell therapy, immunotherapy, and gene editing have significantly impacted biomedical research, the biotech industry, and healthcare practice. This special issue invites submissions of both Original Research and Review articles covering advanced biotechnologies within all aspects of molecular engineering.
The topics the special issue specifically seeks to cover include (but are not limited to):

  • Biomaterials
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Tissue engineering
  • Organ on a chip
  • Bioprinting
  • Drug delivery
  • Immuno-engineering
  • Protein engineering
  • Gene editing
  • Drug discovery, design, and screening
  • Biologics
