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.
To advance basic biological research and translational medicine application on stem cells, Cell Regeneration is inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on “Stem Cell Differentiation, Transdifferentiation, and Reprogramming”.
We encourage original Research, Method, and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Molecular mechanisms and novel approaches in stem cell differentiation, transdifferentiation, and reprogramming
- Stem cell homeostasis and function
- Stem cell-derived organoids
- Disease modeling and drug discovery
- Stem cell-based interventions, therapies, and ethical considerations
The Editor-in-Chief of Cell Regeneration will review all submissions prior to peer review and may reject any of them that do not fit the scope of the journal or do not meet the journal's standards for peer review. All articles of Thematic Series will undergo full, independent peer review, in line with the journal's ethical and editorial policies. There is no guarantee of acceptance, even for commissioned or invited papers. The journal’s Editor-in-Chief has a final authority on editorial content.
