About this book

This volume looks at the state-of-the-science in stem cells, discusses the current challenges, and examines the new directions the field is taking. Dr. Turksen, editor-in-chief of the journal "Stem Cell Reviews and Reports," has assembled a volume of internationally-known scientists who cover topics that are both clinically and research-oriented. The contents range from sources of stem cells through their physiological role in health and disease, therapeutic applications in regenerative medicine, and ethics and society. An initial overview and a final summary bookend the contents into a cohesive and invaluable volume.

About the authors

Dr. Kursad Turksen is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Stem Cell Reviews and Reports and the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine book series, which are both published by Springer. He is also the Editor of numerous protocol volumes published in Springer’s Methods in Molecular Biology series. Dr. Turksen is a Senior Scientist at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, and his research interests cover the area of epidermal stem cells and the role of Claudins in the epidermal lineage.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a compilation of review articles that presents current advances in different areas of research on stem cells and their clinical applications. … It is intended for individuals interested in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, among them scientists working in industry and academia, physicians and other healthcare professionals, and students of biomedical sciences. … This is a good overview of the directions and challenges in the quickly evolving field of stem cell biology.” (Joanna Goral, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)
