Both theranostics and tissue engineering are two of the biggest areas of biomaterials with the potential to revolutionize healthcare. Theranostics conveys the idea of combining both therapy and diagnosis to provide a holistic solution for disease management. Tissue engineering has developed into an advanced and attractive option for the treatment of various disease by combining cells, growth factors and scaffolds. In order to promote the development of the medical field, advances towards clinical translation are crucial. This official WBC themed collection will capture the latest cutting-edge innovations presented at the meeting in both of these rapidly evolving fields and we encourage you to submit your latest fundamental or translational research to feature in the collection.

Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Clinical advances in theranostics or tissue engineering
  • In vivo and in vitro responses to biomedical interventions
  • Molecular design of biomaterials for theranostics or tissue engineering
  • Biologically inspired and biomimetic materials including self-assembly systems
  • Development of carrier systems
  • Controlled or sustained release strategies
  • Next-generation tools and methods
  • Imaging and image guided therapy
  • Cell and immunotherapy


Submissions deadline: 1 December 2024

How to submit

Submissions to the journal should fit within the scope of Biomaterials Science – please see the journal’s website for more information on the journal’s scope, standards, article types and author guidelines.

All manuscripts must be in scope for the journal and will undergo initial assessment by our Associate Editors. Only manuscripts meeting the journal scope and standards will be sent for peer review and will undergo the usual peer review processes in line with the journal’s high standards, and therefore peer review or acceptance is not guaranteed. Accepted manuscripts will be added to the online collection as soon as they are published and they will be featured in a regular issue of the relevant journal.

If you would like to contribute to this themed collection, please submit your article directly through the Biomaterials Science submission service. Please mention that your submission is a contribution to the WBC2024 collection in the “Themed issues” section of the submission form. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of both the journal and the collection, and as such inclusion of accepted articles in the final themed collection is not guaranteed.

If you have any questions about the collection or the submissions process, please do contact the Editorial Office at and they will be able to assist.

We look forward to receiving your latest work and considering it for this collection!
