Overview

The fields of stem cell research, regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, and cloning are very closely related. It is important for researchers in each of these disciplines to be aware of the methods and principles in the others. Elsevier publishes some of the highest individual references in these areas. Bringing together the principles, applications, and basic understanding in these related areas of science will provide a new reference which is serve the needs of a variety of researchers. Edited by Dr. Bruce Carlson, Stem CellAnthology will be valuable to researchers and students who need to save time and link concepts to principles, applications, and methods in order to work more effectively and see links for potential collaborations.
  • Includes acollection of chapters by leaders in the stem cell field including the first researchers to discover iPS cells and multiple Nobel Laureates
  • Provides the most detailed introduction tobasic properties of major embryonic and adult stem cellsby highlightingbreakthrough discoveries inthe nervous system, spinal cord, heart, pancreas, epidermis, musculo-skeletal, retina - leading areas of stem cell research in human application
  • Detailstechnical laboratory set upfor practitioners, technicians, and administrators
