About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we welcome both original research and review articles related to the cause, diagnostics, treatments, and therapeutics of non-communicable diseases that focus on the mechanisms that control cell morphology, proliferation, differentiation, and communication to understand disease, regeneration, and repair; biochemistry and molecular genetics of disease; and development of advanced biomaterials, and their interaction with biological systems. These themes include, but are not limited to, the following:
•Cell communication and signaling;
•Polymers involved in cell biology;
•Biocompatibility and safety for artificial organ using polymer systems;
•Biodegradable polymers with different degradation kinetics in the bio-environment;
•Molecular probes and nanoparticles for imaging;
•Drug delivery carriers;
•Synovial fluid and articular cartilage;
•Disease modelling for drug and therapeutic development;
•Diagnostics and therapeutics.
