Reflecting on how the field of regenerative medicine has changed in the past 10 years, Future Science Group (FSG) is excited to announce the release of the 10-Year Anniversary Special Focus Issue of Regenerative Medicine entitled "Regenerative medicine: past, present and future".
The special issue takes a look at the past decade in regenerative
medicine and provides an overview and perspectives on the progress being
made in the field as a whole, as well as in a number of more specific
areas including cellular therapy, genome editing, pluripotent stem cell
research, ligament regenerative engineering, nanotechnology,
immunogenicity and regenerative pharmacology.
‘Articles published in the 10-year anniversary special focus issue of Regenerative Medicine highlights important advances that have occurred, and that are likely to impact the future success of the field.’
The issue also provides
insight into major institutions involved in the field of regenerative
medicine, describing their history, current work and plans for the
