About the Journal
Trends in Biomaterials and Artificial Organs is a peer reviewed international journal incorporating research mainly related to Biomaterials, Artificial Organs, Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine and Drug Delivery. The journal publishes Original Research Articles, Short Communications, Review Articles and Letter to Editor, in English language. The focus of publication is centred on the synthesis, characterisation and biocompatibility studies of biomaterials and the design, validation and performance evaluation of medical devices. Biomaterials include synthetic materials falling in the classes of metals, alloys, polymers and ceramics, as well as natural materials like chitosan, silk, collagen and processed animal and human tissues. Composite forms of these materials and nanostructures have made their impact in this area and fabrication techniques like 3D bioprinting is changing the scenario. Innovative devices, implants and prostheses are being developed, spanning across various medical specialities like cardiovascular, neurological, orthopaedic, maxillofacial, spinal and ophthalmic, along with dentistry. The topics of interest extend to scaffolds fabrication and tissue regeneration aspects and to diagnostic devices and drug delivery systems.
Trends in Biomaterials and Artificial Organs provides a platform for sharing the state-of-the-art information on the role of biocompatible materials and their structures and functional ensembles, in enhancing the quality of life. Objective of the journal is to act as a catalyst in the rapid growth of Biomedical research and support its translation to products useful for healthcare.
