New Deadline for Special ASME Journal Issue on Microscale Medical Devices

Dec. 8, 2017


The deadline to submit a paper for the ASME Journal of Medical Devices’ “Special Issue on Microscale Medical Devices” has been extended to March 1, 2018.

This special issue of the ASME Journal of Medical Devices, which was previously titled “Biomimetic Medical Devices: Microfluidics, MEMS, and NEMS,” will highlight original research on the use of microscale devices for medical applications. Manuscripts being submitted for the special issue should describe new results from novel microfluidic, MEMS, NEMS or other microscale devices. Reports on experimental or computational research are welcome.

Yaling Liu, associate professor of mechanical engineering and mechanics at Lehigh University, is the editor for the special issue, which will also focus on areas including lab-on-a-chip, organ-on-a-chip, biomimetics, medical devices, nanotechnology, disease diagnosis, drug screening and biosensing.

Papers should be submitted to the journal electronically by March 1, 2018, through the ASME Journals Digital Submission Site at The initial review of submissions will be completed by April 15, 2018, and the special issue will be published in September 2018.
