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.
The issue also provides insight into major institutions involved in the field of regenerative medicine, describing their history, current work and plans for the future.
Lanza concludes, "The field of regenerative medicine has continued to grow and change rapidly in the past 10 years. We believe that these articles help highlight important advances that have occurred, and that are likely to impact the future success of the field. The publication of this special issue celebrates an exciting milestone for Regenerative Medicine - the tenth year anniversary of the journal. I hope you will join me in congratulating the journal for reaching this major milestone."
Commissioning Editor for Regenerative Medicine Adam Price-Evans commented, "Bursting on to the scene in 2006 with the ALPSP/Charlesworth Award for Best New Journal, Regenerative Medicine has remained at the forefront of the field for the past decade. The journal continues to showcase the latest research and expert commentary from leaders in the field of regenerative medicine and we look forward to the next ten years."
