Adult stem cells

Adult stem cells bypass ethical concerns surrounding embryonic stem cells, and although their capacity is more limited, they still possess multipotent potential and potency for regenerative treatments. How can we harness the power of these cells for effective regeneration of tissues? This series, published in Cell Regeneration, aims to address those questions.

The articles in the series have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Editors for this series declare no competing interests.
