A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.
In the last decade, while the tremendous scientific advance in stem cells and tissue engineering for regenerative biology and medicine, it remains challenged to translate such findings into clinics. Alternatively, some vertebrate animals such as zebrafish and frogs have great potential of whole-organ regeneration after injury, therefore understanding regenerative mechanisms in these animals may lead to revealing new therapeutic prevention and intervention in the field of regenerative medicine. To highlight these progresses on organ regeneration in model organisms, Cell Regeneration is currently inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on Organ Regeneration in Model Organisms.
