RETM calls for submissions to a Special Issue in tribute to Bob Langer and his 70th Birthday

We are pleased to announce that Regenerative Engineering and Translational Medicine will publish a two-volume Special Issue as a tribute to Bob Langer and his 70th Birthday. We are now ready to receive your contributions. Please make sure to indicate in your cover letter that your paper is intended to be part of the Special Issue in honor of Bob Langer’s 70th Birthday.
Your manuscript will be peer-reviewed expeditiously. In addition to being published in the journal, we will collect all contributions and highlight them in Virtual Volume(s) on the journal’s web page. These Virtual Volume(s) will remain visible and accessible. In addition, the corresponding authors of the papers will receive specially bound commemorative editions of these volumes.
The manuscript can be submitted via this link: https://www.editorialmanager.com/RETM/default.aspx.
Once logged in as an author, please choose article type: ‘T.C.: In Honor of Robert Langer's 70th Birthday’
Joachim Kohn, Jordan Green and Lakshmi Nair are the guest editors for this Special Issue and look forward to making the issue a wonderful tribute to Bob Langer and his work. Please note that RETM has a unique feature: every article published requires a lay abstract intended to be understandable by the public. This lay abstract gives the authors an opportunity to relate the manuscript to Bob’s work and to make a few comments on Bob’s influence on the author(s) and/or the work.

  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    Regenerative Engineering is an international journal covering convergence of the disciplines of tissue engineering, advanced materials science, stem cell research, the physical sciences, and areas of developmental biology. This convergence brings exciting opportunities to translate bench-top research into bedside methods, allowing the possibility of moving beyond maintaining or repairing tissues to regenerating them. The journal encourages both top-down engineering approaches and bottom-up strategies integrating materials science with stem cell research and developmental biology. Convergence papers on instructive biomaterials, stimuli-responsive biomaterials, micro- and nano-patterning for regenerative engineering, elastomeric biomaterials, hydrogels for tissue engineering, and rapid prototyping and bioprinting approaches are particularly welcome.

    The journal provides a premier, single-blind peer-reviewed forum for the publication of original papers, authoritative reviews, rapid communications, news and views, and opinion papers addressing the most important issues and efforts toward successfully regenerating complex human tissues and organs. All research articles feature a lay abstract highlighting the relevance and future impact for patients, government and other health officials, and members of the general public. Bridging the gap between the lab and the clinic, the journal also serves as a dedicated platform for showcasing translational research that brings basic scientific research and discoveries into clinical methods and therapies, contributing to the improvement of human health care.
