Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Peripheral nerve surgery has experienced significant advancements in recent decadesthanks to progress in peripheral nerve transfers and the refinement of microsurgical techniques. However, surgical options are still primarily centered on restoring nerve continuity. There is mounting evidence indicating substantial potential for the next phase to encompass the targeted manipulation of nerve regeneration by impacting cellular or hormonal microenvironments. Hence, this Special Issue focuses on fundamental aspects that could foster positive outcomes in nerve regeneration. Manuscripts exploring the analysis and modulation of cellular nerve regeneration via innovative methods in cell cultures, as well as the precise application of growth factors, exosomes, and stem cells, are encouraged to be submitted.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
