Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will center around the latest cutting-edge breakthroughs in stem cell research within immunotherapy and regenerative medicine. In recent years, advancements in stem cell research have opened promising avenues for treating and potentially curing diverse conditions such as cancers, metabolic disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. The immense potential of specific human iPSC-derived cell lineages, including CAR T cells, CAR NK cells, neurons, cardiomyocytes, and pancreatic islets, holds transformative possibilities in revolutionizing medical practices through the development of innovative therapies. This Special Issue will explore a range of topics related to stem cell therapy, encompassing iPSC (induced pluripotent stem cell)- or hematopoietic-stem-cell-derived, therapeutically relevant lineages. We welcome original manuscripts and reviews that delve into these subjects, contributing to a more profound comprehension of recent advancements and challenges in these domains.
