Journal of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering 
ISSN: 2157-9083 (Print): EISSN: 2157-9091 (Online)
Copyright © American Scientific Publishers.


Aims and Scope
Journal of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (JBT) is being created as an international peer-reviewed journal that covers all aspects of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The journal has been developed to create a new forum of scientific publications at the interface of biomaterials, tissue engineering and drug delivery research. JBT publishes original rapid communications, full research papers and timely state-of-the-art reviews (with author's photo and biography) encompassing the fundamental and applied research in the fields of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Rapid communications on new findings with breakthrough results will be considered for accelerated publication. The journal also publishes thematic special issues featuring selected peer-reviewed research papers from major conferences in the related disciplines. To speed up the reviewing process, we will provide on-line refereeing of all articles submitted in electronic form. Authors will receive the following benefits:
  • Electronic submission of articles
  • Fast reviews
  • Rapid times to publication
  • No page charges
  • Free color where justified
  • Distinguished editorial board
  • Availability in print and online editions
RESEARCH TOPICS COVERED (but not limited to)
The journal focuses on the broad spectrum of research topics regarding theoretical and experimental aspects of biomaterials and tissue engineering including polymeric biomaterials, metallic biomaterials, ceramic biomaterials, composites, biomimetics, biomolecular assembly, nanobiomaterials, synthesis, characterization, chemical, physical, mechanical, biological and toxicological properties, byproducts, bioimplants and medical devices, biofilms, bioimaging, BioMEMS/NEMS, biosensors, performance of biomaterials, physiology and pathology, biomechanics, biological microarrays, surface functionalization, fibers, tissue scaffolds, porous biomaterials, combinatorial gradients, micro-/nanofabrication systems, cell patterning, cellular microenvironments, stem cell engineering, tissue engineering and modeling, artificial organs, hard and soft tissue applications, tissue interfaces, interactions between biomaterials, blood, cells, tissues, and organs, DNA technology, protein and drug delivery, gene delivery, molecular therapy, molecular biopharmaceutics, drug screening and delivery systems, polymeric drugs and polymeric drug conjugates, prodrugs, and medical nanotechnology related to the molecular design concepts, synthesis, production, characterization, nanomedecine as diagnostics and therapeutics tools, treatment of all types of diseases, regenerative medicine and nanomedicine, clinical performance, medical and clinical evaluation of drugs and delivery systems in vitro and in vivo.

Biomaterials: A Nano Approach

  • Biomaterials: A Nano Approach

Biomaterials: A Nano Approach - Book Description

Biomaterials: A Nano Approach is written from a multi-disciplinary point of view that integrates aspects of materials science and engineering, nanotechnology, bioengineering, and biosciences. The book fills a glaring void in the literature by providing a comprehensive discussion of biomaterials and a scientifically plausible extrapolation of likely scenarios in which nanotechnology could play a significant role. The authors introduce and examine basic concepts, processing methodologies, and techniques involved in the preparation and characterization of nanobiomaterials that are specific to biomedical applications.

A Self-Contained Book Illustrating Past, Present, and Future Trends in Biomaterials

Spanning from the historical development of biomaterials to cutting-edge advances in the field, the text describes how basic concepts in nanotechnology are applied to the processing of novel nanobiomaterials, including nanostructured metals and alloys. With its illustrative examples and presentation of applications, this text offers a solid framework for understanding present and future trends of biomaterials in human healthcare systems. It is an ideal companion resource for students, researchers, and industrial scientists who specialize in biomaterials and nanobiomaterials.

Bionanoscience attempts to harness various functions of biological macromolecules and integrate them with engineering for technological applications. It is based on a bottom-up approach and encompasses structural biology, biomacromolecular engineering, material science, and engineering, extending the horizon of material science. The journal aims at publication of (i) Letters (ii) Reviews (3) Concepts (4) Rapid communications (5) Research papers (6) Book reviews (7) Conference announcements in the interface between chemistry, physics, biology, material science, and technology. The use of biological macromolecules as sensors, biomaterials, information storage devices, biomolecular arrays, molecular machines is significantly increasing. The traditional disciplines of chemistry, physics, and biology are overlapping and coalescing with nanoscale science and technology. Currently research in this area is scattered in different journals and this journal seeks to bring them under a single umbrella to ensure highest quality peer-reviewed research for rapid dissemination in areas that are in the forefront of science and technology which is witnessing phenomenal and accelerated growth.
Topics will include:
  • Cloning, expression, purification, site directed mutagenesis of proteins
  • Probing surface phenomenon associated with immobilized proteins and nucleic acids on surfaces
  • Structural biology of nucleic acids, proteins, peptides and lipids in relevance to bionanotechnology
  • Protein engineering and design of proteins
  • Immobilization of proteins, nucleic acids
  • Genomics, functional and structural genomics
  • Gene expression, function and structure
  • Stem cells research
  • Cell imaging, signaling and transduction mechanisms
  • Biomembrane structure and function
  • Molecular modeling, theoretical, and computational biology
