A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.
The hematopoietic system is a paradigm for stem cell research. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are a population of multipotent cells that can self-renew and differentiate into all blood lineages, maintaining lifelong blood production. The development of HSCs and their derivatives must be tightly controlled, which involves a complex of extrinsic signaling and intrinsic factors. A better understanding of the ontogeny of HSCs and their regulation could improve de novo generation and expansion of functional HSCs, and will provide useful insights for their applications in regenerative medicine.
To highlight recent progress on HSC research, Cell Regeneration is inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on “Developmental hematopoiesis and stem cells”.
We will especially welcome Research, Method and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Developmental hematopoiesis
- Hematopoiesis malignancies
- Single cell omics in hematopoiesis
- Lineage tracing in hematopoiesis
- HSC culture and organoid
