The exploitation of nanotechnology in the development of biomedical devices allowed the control of interactions among materials and biological entities at previously unreachable levels, down to the single molecule. In this context, nanomaterials, nanostructures, and nanostructured surfaces allowed “mimicking” the biological microenvironments, and thus to foster specific cellular functionalities and to fix peculiar pathological mechanisms.
Recently, an increased interest towards “smart” materials emerged among the scientific community: these are materials able to actively react upon appropriate environmental stimuli, by changing their functional/structural features and behaving as real “nanotransducers” at cellular and sub-cellular level.
This Research Topic will focus on the investigation and integration of “smart” nanotechnologies in the field of regenerative medicine, and more in general towards a real clinical translation. Manuscripts (both original researches and review articles) on advanced micro/nanofabrication techniques are welcome, as well on the preparation of new generation scaffolds for regenerative medicine. Moreover, “active” nanovectors able to manipulate/sense biological signals will be also approached.


Keywords: Smart Nanomaterials, Nanomedicine, Tissue Engineering, Drug Delivery, Translational Research
