About Biomaterials Science


Biomaterials Science is an international, high impact journal exploring the underlying science behind the function, interactions and design of biomaterials. Its scope encompasses insights into the chemistry, biology and materials science underpinning biomaterials research, new concepts in biomaterials design, and using materials to answer fundamental biological questions.

The journal is a collaborative venture between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences, Kyoto University, Japan.  It publishes primary research and review-type articles which advance fundamental understanding in areas including:

  • Molecular design of biomaterials, including proof of concept studies 
  • Science of cells and materials at the mesoscale 
  • Materials as model systems for stem cell biology 
  • Materials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine 
  • Materials and Systems for Therapeutic Delivery
  • Interactions at the biointerface
  • Biologically inspired and biomimetic materials, including bio-inspired self-assembly systems and cell-inspired synthetic tools
  • Next-generation tools and methods for biomedical applications
