Stem cells and cell reprogramming have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. This holds an enormous promise to generate functional cells for cell based therapies, and to develop disease models for drug screening, toxicity testing and biomarker discovery.
This virtual special issue is focused on the stem cell biology and cell reprogramming and it will be covering topics based on laboratory investigations and the translation of clinical aspects from the bench towards to the patient care. We welcome papers on embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, adult and tissue-specific stem cells, and direct reprogramming. Topics based on Stem Cell Technologies, Mechanisms of Cell Differentiation and Reprogramming, Epigenetics, Organoids Models, and Regenerative Medicine will also be covered.

Submission Deadline: 29 February 2020
Manuscripts should be submitted online through Hapres Online Submission System. Please visit Guide for Authors before submitting a manuscript. Authors are encouraged to submit a paper as soon as it is ready and don’t need to wait until the deadline. Submissions will be sent to peer-review in order of arrival. Accepted papers will be published continuously in Regenerative Medicine Frontiers (RMF) and then gathered together on the special issue webpage. We welcome Research articles, Review papers and Short Communications. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.
All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.
Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
