A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.

Stem cells harbor the potentials of self-renewal and differentiation towards a variety of somatic cells, providing translational possibilities for regenerative medicine. Meanwhile, transdifferentiation between distinct cell types and reprogramming of somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem cells can obtain multiple types of stem cell models, facilitating the study of life sciences and biomedicine. Therefore, a better understanding of stem cell development and cell fate decision will provide insights for investigating materials and strategies for regenerative medicine. Manuscripts dealing with any of these related topics are particularly suited for the scope of this special issue.
