Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary research field that involves expertise related to cell biology, micro/nanoscale engineering, and medicine to develop artificial tissues able to restore the lost function of diseased or damaged organs. The scientific literature has well established the power of using electrospinning technology over other methods of scaffold fabrication, due to its ease of use, its scalability, and the possibility to design the intrinsic morphology of electrospun scaffolds that well mimic the extracellular matrix of the native tissues. Moreover, electrospinning allows easy incorporation of bioactive molecules (e.g. growth factors and peptides) in the scaffold, as well as the possibility to design multilayer and complex structures resembling the complexity of natural tissues.

The main aim of this Special Issue of Electrospinning is to present the current state of research related to the electrospinning technology applied in the tissue engineering field, covering the engineering and processing approaches, materials, and applications. Emerging and future research directions are welcome.

We are pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for the Special Issue on “Electrospinning in Tissue Engineering” in the form of full research papers, communications, and review articles. We look forward to receiving your contribution for this Special Issue.



The authors are kindly invited to submit their manuscripts by email to Coordinating Editor or to Journal Editor (esp.editorial@degruyteropen.com. In case of any questions please contact Coordinating Editor or Journal Editor.
