Extracellular vesicles and regenerative medicine

Edited by Jeffrey Karp, Armand Keating and Kelvin Ng

An article collection in Stem Cell Research & Therapy.

Evidence implicating extracellular vesicles (EVs) in regenerative processes is rapidly accumulating. This series reviews recent progress in understanding EV biology and how it may be harnessed for therapy.
