Stem cells and genitourinary regeneration

Edited by John D Jackson

An article collection in Stem Cell Research & Therapy.

This series of articles explores the role of stem cells in the regeneration and repair of the genitourinary system. The commissioned reviews focus on reproductive tissue stem cells in testes and ovaries, and on the urinary system, examining the role of stem cells in regeneration of kidney and bladder.

This series of articles has not been sponsored. All articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer review process. The Series Editor and Editors declare no competing interests.
