Aims and scope

Bio-Design and Manufacturing (BDM), launched in 2018, is a new peer-reviewed journal focusing on mechanical engineering, mechatronic devices, and biomedical engineering. It addresses aspects including bioinks and formulation, tissue and organ engineering, medical and diagnostic devices, and bioproducts design, as well as multidisciplinary studies associated with bio-design and manufacturing. In brief, BDM mainly covers the following topics:

Mechanical Engineering

· Development of novel mechatronic systems for 3D printing and additive manufacturing

· Design of 3D printing strategies and optimization of the biomanufacturing process

· Analysis of processing parameters and their impact on the functionality of bioproducts

Bioinks and Formulation

· Development of novel bioinks with enhanced biocompatibility and processability

· Formulation of bioinks for tissue-specific construction

Tissue and Organ Engineering

· Construction of engineered tissues and organs in vitro and in vivo

· Tissue scaffold design and fabrication

· Cell assembly and organoid construction

Medical and Diagnostic Devices

· Bioreactors

· Organ-on-a-chip

· In vitro disease models

· MEMS (micro electro-mechanical system) devices for medical applications

Bioproduct Design

· Design of therapeutic products

· Design of cellular products

· Design of macromolecular products

· Bionic design & manufacturing
