The research of biological tissue processing is essentially a fundamental investigation of cutting and fracturing of the tissues, which involves various disciplines such as manufacturing, mechanics, biology, and medicine. How to effectively cut or puncture biological tissues thus to reduce the damage of the original/surrounding tissues is of significance that influences the quality of surgery and recovery of patients. This has been a critical problem due to the special characteristics of the biological tissues such as anisotropy, cell activity, multiscale structure, and easy deformation. While this research is a new and unique domain of the collaboration between engineering and medicine, there has already significant advances in this area recently.
Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering (CJME) is planning to publish a Special Issue on Processing of Biological Tissue in the middle of 2021.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following aspects,
- Biological tissue machining - theory, method, tooling, and facilities
- Machining of hard and soft tissues
- Tooling for tissue processing and surgery
- Advanced materials for medical devices
- Acupuncture, microneedles and biopsy
- Medical/mechanical interface
- Medical robots
- Mechanics of biological tissues
- Precision surgical instruments
- Biotribology in tissue processing
