Call for Papers: Bioengineering the Lung: Molecules, Materials, Matrix, Morphology, and Mechanics

The American Journal of Physiology Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology is seeking manuscripts that highlight new scientific advances in key concepts and challenges to the design, implementation and utilization of engineered lung tissue for transplantation. Basic, translational, and clinical research papers as well as review articles will be considered, especially those focusing on these specific concepts: 1) Biocompatible Scaffolds and Mechanisms of Cellularization; 2) Mechanical Forces; 3) Graft Vascularization; and 4) Immune Responses to Bioengineered Lung Tissues.
All papers will be reviewed promptly, thoroughly, and fairly by members of the Editorial Board and guest reviewers who are recognized experts in this field. Accepted manuscripts will be published under a distinct heading and will receive special attention and handling. Only those papers not requiring extensive revision will be published under this call. If you currently have a manuscript on this topic that has already been submitted and would like it to be included in this Special Call, please contact Dr. Sadis Matalon, Editor-in-Chief via e-mail at
