Stem cells and regenerative medicine have emerged as amongst the most exciting areas of biomedical and translational research, with huge anticipation for their use in restoration, repair and regeneration of human tissues and organs. Characterization of stem cells from various sources and attempts to demonstrate their potential in normal biological or pathological settings are two of the primary goals of the stem cell biologist. In this multidisciplinary volume, basic and clinical scientists cover both embryonic and adult stem cell sources, the current state of knowledge as well as the challenges that underlie translational medicine applications. Thus, the volume will be valuable for a broad audience of trainees (graduate students, post-doctoral fellows), and novice as well as more advanced researchers in the field of regenerative medicine.
