Leading Editor: Prof. Jing-Wei Xiong, Prof. Jinrong Peng, and Prof. Lingfei Luo
In the last decade, while the tremendous scientific advance in stem cells and tissue engineering for regenerative biology and medicine, it remains challenged to translate such findings into clinics. Alternatively, some vertebrate animals such as zebrafish and frogs have great potential of whole-organ regeneration after injury, therefore understanding regenerative mechanisms in these animals may lead to revealing new therapeutic prevention and intervention in the field of regenerative medicine. To highlight these progresses on organ regeneration in model organisms, Cell Regeneration is currently inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on Organ Regeneration in Model Organisms.
The special issue will be led by Prof. Jing-Wei Xiong (Peking University), Prof. Jinrong Peng (Zhejiang University), and Prof. Lingfei Luo (Southwest University). They will have advisory roles to guide the scope of the issue and provide advice on commissioned content, as well as be involved in the editorial decision making on all papers submitted. Scheduled for the publication of this special issue from 2019 to 2020. The submission deadline is December 31, 2020. Organ regeneration research of exceptional interest, alongside commissioned review and comment articles from experts in the field will be converged on this special issue.
We will especially welcome Research, Method and Resource, Opinion and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
l Developmental insights into organ regeneration;
* Adult stem cells, niche, and mobilization during organ repair and regeneration;
* Endogenous and engineered cell transdifferentiation and dedifferentiation for organ regeneration;
* Molecular mechanisms on organ regeneration and repair.
Please submit directly to Cell Regeneration stating in your cover letter that you are targeting the ‘Organ Regeneration in Model Organisms' collection.
Cell Regeneration is an official journal of Chinese Society for Cell Biology (CSCB). The publication costs for this journal are covered by CSCB, so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge for each article accepted for publication.
Deadline for submission to the collection: Dec 31st, 2020.
