Guest editor: Prof. Petros D. Karkos,  Aristotle University of Thessaloniki; 1st Department of Otolaryngology, AHEPA University Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece

Regenerative medicine (RM) has been rapidly evolving in many directions and fields of medicine. Tissue engineering gives the opportunity to rectify abnormalities by using scaffolds that simulate the normal structure and function of many organs and tissues. The field of Head and Neck is large including paramount functions such as breathing, hearing, balance, voice and swallowing, facial expressing and aesthetics. The diversity of the cells and tissues concerning all those vital functions makes RM very challenging in the field of otorhinolaryngology, facial plastics, dermatology and maxillofacial surgery. 

We invite authors from all the specialties above to submit to this special issue.

Submission deadline: October 31, 2023
