Recruiting Vice Editor-in-Chief

Message from the Editor-in-Chief

Cell Regeneration, an open access academic journal, was relaunched by the Chinese Society for Cell Biology in 2019. The journal, founded by the Guangzhou Institute of Biomedicine and Health, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012, has published many outstanding papers in the past few years. As an official journal of the Society, Cell Regeneration has undergone major actions such as reorganization of the editorial board and reorientation of journals with new scopes. In 2020, the Society and Springer began co-publishing Cell Regeneration, hoping to better serve the authors and the readers. We aim to position the journal at the forefront of basic and applied research of stem cell biology, regenerative biology and regenerative medicine, including embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, tissue stem cells, tissue and organ regeneration, related methodology, biomaterials, regenerative medical applications and associated research.

The journal publishes original research and review articles and is committed to maintain high quality standard and provide efficient peer-reviews and publishing services. We wish to take this opportunity to sincerely invite you to submit your manuscripts to the journal.
