Latest Research

News & Comment


  • Advances in the isolation of cancer biomarkers in blood and in imaging probes will make a difference in the early detection of cancer.
  • Engineering and materials-science advances drive the miniaturization and long-term and safe operation of bioelectronic devices for diagnostics or therapy.
  • The accelerating power of machine learning in diagnosing disease and in sorting and classifying health data will empower physicians and speed-up decision making in the clinic.
  • Strategies that increase the functional durability of implanted biomaterials suggest that retention of function might be more important than retention of the biomaterial itself.

About the Journal

  • Straddling the life sciences, the physical sciences and engineering, the journal publishes biological, medical and engineering advances — technological, translational, methodological or fundamental — that can directly inspire or lead to improvements in human health.
  • The journal publishes original research in one format: Article. Review Articles provide authoritative and balanced discussions of research developments. Perspectives, Comments, and News & Views include informed opinion.
  • Chief Editor Pep Pàmies has broad editorial expertise in biomaterials and bioengineering. Associate Editors Michelle Korda, Rosy Favicchio and João Duarte have research expertise in advanced therapy clinical trials, molecular imaging and immunoengineering.

For authors & referees

  • Summary of the processes of manuscript submission, peer review and post review, and of editorial and publishing policies.
  • Explanation of the submission, peer-review, decision and revision processes.
  • Information about submitting initial, revised and final submissions.
  • Format requirements for the main text, figures, Methods and Supplementary Information of final submissions.
  • Guidelines for writing reviews, and information about confidentiality, anonymity and other aspects of the peer-review process.

Volume 1 Issue 7

Arraying neutrophil swarms

This issue highlights technology for the characterization of human-neutrophil swarming, and also includes advances in non-destructive histopathology, the biophysics of ageing, oligonucleotide cloning probes and Matrigel substitutes.

The cover shows a snapshot of the swarming of human neutrophils on a microscale array (Article).
