Main content


The Biomedical Engineering category aims to publish original research articles and mini reviews that integrate novel engineering methods with biology and medicine. Such examples include novel nanotechnology platforms for biosensing, imaging disease-specific biomarkers, and therapeutic delivery; advanced imaging technology (e.g. MRI, PET) for quantitative analysis of pathophysiology; novel biomaterial scaffold and controlled release technology for tissue engineering applications; and integrated imaging and therapeutic systems (Theranostics) for image-guided therapy. Interdisciplinary approaches bridging engineering sciences with biology and medicine are strongly endorsed, and there is reduced interest in traditional, well-defined areas of research (e.g. biomedical transducers) unless unique designs that will lead to unprecedented biological discoveries are evident. For minieviews, we strongly encourage thought leaders in the field to discuss future opportunities in the emerging key technologies, and how they may benefit biology and medicine. For original research articles, we emphasize the scientific merit as well as the artistic presentation for effective communication of the scientific data.
