I fondatori di Caresilk Guest Editors dello Special Issue "Development and Application of Silk-Proteins Based Biomaterials" della rivista scientifica Materials

Materials è un peer-reviewed open access journal con impact factor 3.057 pubblicato da MDPI. La rivista, che ha un focus sui progressi scientifici della ricerca nel campo della scienza dei materiali e dell’ingegneria, ospita nella sezione “Biomaterials” un recente special issue dal titolo “Development and Application of Silk-Proteins Based Biomaterials” di cui i fondatori di Caresilk sono Guest Editors. 
Questo special issue intende esplorare i progressi scientifici nello sviluppo di biomateriali a base di proteine della seta nel campo della bioingegneria e delle biotecnologie, contribuendo così ad accrescere l’interesse nei confronti di un materiale promettente e poliedrico come la seta.

Message from the Guest Editors
Silk is an interesting biomaterial mainly composed of two proteins, namely, fibroin and sericin, characterized by excellent biological and physical–chemical properties that can be properly exploited to develop advanced materials and devices for a wide range of technological applications.
Over the last decade, these proteins have received huge attention by academic research, which has explored the multiple options for processing and the incredible potential of fibroin and sericin for the development of different products with specific properties. However, although many interesting studies have been already published, more research is still needed for investigating the increasing number of applications of fibroin and sericin, particularly for tissue engineering. This Special Issue aims at exploring the most recent progresses in the development of silk proteins-based biomaterials for application in bioengineering and biotechnology, with special attention to regenerative medicine, drug delivery and wound healing. It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute full papers, review article and communication for this Special Issue.
