Abstract:
The American Chemical Society (ACS) announced today that David L. Kaplan, Ph.D., will head the brand-new, web-only journal ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering™ as editor-in-chief. With the first issue slated for publication in January 2015, the new journal will feature high-quality research in the rapidly burgeoning field of biomaterials, the study of engineered or naturally derived materials that interact with living or biological systems.

ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering™: Brand-new journal names editor

Washington, DC | Posted on July 29th, 2014

"This new journal is timely as it reflects the tremendous growth in the field of biomaterials over the past decade and the importance of biomaterial designs on biological outcomes," says Kaplan. He is the Stern Family Endowed Professor of Engineering and chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tufts University.

Globally, the market for biomaterials is expected to reach $88 billion within the next three years, growing at a rate of 15 percent from 2012 to 2017. All of the major United States funding agencies have programs to support work on this topic and related research areas, totaling nearly $1 billion. In addition, two European Commission programs have allocated about $15.6 billion for biomaterials research between 2013 and 2017. Fueled by increased research funding worldwide, the core biomaterials area has experienced a 52 percent growth in published content over the last five years.

Biomaterials research encompasses such diverse topics as using stem cells to build new tissues to treat disease and developing eco-friendly, biodegradable materials. Kaplan's own research focuses on biopolymer engineering, with an emphasis on biomaterials engineering, tissue engineering, molecular biology and regenerative medicine. The materials he studies include proteins, such as silks, collagens and elastins, with applications in stem cell technology and regenerative medicine.

ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering™, a monthly publication, will feature papers in the following key areas:

New and modified biomaterials, as well as bioinspired and biomimetic approaches to biomaterials
Biomaterial interfaces for biology and health
Manufacturing, technology and tissues in the context of biomaterials
Modeling and informatics tools

"ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering™ will provide scientists from many disciplines with a publishing outlet for their work at the interface of biology and materials science and engineering," says Susan King, Ph.D., senior vice president of the ACS Journals Publishing Group. "We look forward to working with Dr. Kaplan to make the new journal a success."

Manuscript submission will open in September.
