Call for papers: CRISPR biomaterials


Biomaterials Science is delighted to announce a call for papers for its latest themed collection on “CRISPR biomaterials” Guest Edited by Yuan Ping (Zhejiang University), Ming Wang (Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences) and Qiaobing Xu (Tufts University). 


You can access the online collection here to look at the first few contributions to this collection.


The shortage of delivery biomaterials that can deliver genome editors and control editing activities represents one of the major challenges for successful CRISPR/Cas-based genome editing. This collection on CRISPR biomaterials seeks to fuel the development in the field of biomaterials for CRISPR/Cas-based genome editing components, and provide a comprehensive overview of the emerging delivery technologies and recent progresses for exploiting biomaterials for CRISPR/Cas systems. We aim to cover the principles of biomacromolecule delivery and gene editing, examine recent advances and challenges in both non-viral and viral delivery methods, and exemplify the status of related applications and clinical trials. The current challenges and future prospects of the delivery technologies for CRISPR system for clinical translations will also discussed.


Manuscripts should be submitted via the Royal Society of Chemistry’s online submission service available at and let us know by email to Please add a “note to the editor” in the submission form when you submit your manuscript to say that this is a submission for the themed collection. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of the collection and inclusion of accepted articles in the collection is not guaranteed. Please see our website for more information on journal scope, standards, article types and author guidelines.


All manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s usual peer review process. Accepted manuscripts will be added to the online collection as soon as they are online and they will be published in a regular issue of Biomaterials Science.


If you have any questions about the journal or the collection, then please do contact the Editorial Office at
