Most Influential Articles from the Stem Cell Sister Journals
Stem Cells | Stem Cells Translational Medicine
A Note from Terry R.J. Lappin, Concise Review Editor for the Sister Journals
The major challenge confronting regenerative medicine is to find safe practical procedures to harness the potential of stem cells for long term clinical benefit. Two key objectives of the escalating efforts in stem cell research are to develop a deep understanding of stem cell biology, and to apply this knowledge to exploit novel therapeutic options.
STEM CELLS and STEM CELLS Translational Medicine focus on these areas, covering a diverse array of preclinical and clinical research.
The 14 well-cited articles selected for this special issue attest to the depth and breadth of recent publications in the Sister Journals. They report studies on exosomes, mesenchymal stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells which were designed to clarify mechanisms of differentiation, mechanosensitivity and immunosuppression, using cutting-edge techniques such as lineage tracing and CRISPR/Cas9. These approaches have provided valuable insights into neuroregeneration, angiogenesis, hematopoiesis, cancer progression, aging and wound healing. Practical issues such as the source, stage of development and purity of donor cells and the use of xeno-free media are also discussed.
The Editors hope that you will enjoy browsing this eclectic collection of recent manuscripts from STEM CELLS and STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, and that their continuing commitment to the Sister Journals will make a useful contribution to the ongoing progress of regenerative medicine.
