Cardiovascular regeneration series in Stem Cell Research & Therapy

Stem Cell Research & Therapy has issued a call for research submissions for inclusion in a thematic series on cardiovascular regeneration, edited by Ronald Li.

The series will review the current state-of-the-art stem cell-based approaches for disease modelling, drug discovery and myocardial repair, as well as the associated hurdles and potential solutions. Authors of commissioned reviews include Kenneth Boheler (National Institutes of Health, USA), Steve Oh (BTI, Singapore) and Sean Wu (Stanford University).

Manuscripts should be submitted online, please indicate in the covering letter that they should be considered for the cardiovascular regeneration series. Any enquiries should be directed to the Stem Cell Research & Therapy editorial office.

Regenerative Medicine Research: a new journal

Regenerative Medicine Research is a new journal that welcomes submissions relating to both the fundamental and practical aspects of regenerative medicine, with a particular emphasis on translational research.

Edited by Y. James Kang, the journal encourages papers from both basic and applied sciences, including the large field of biomedical research in which chronic diseases have become an increasingly prominent area of research, and regenerative medicine has become the first answer of choice.

Manuscripts can be submitted via the online submission system and pre-submission enquiries should be sent to
