Special Issue "Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine: In Vitro and In Vivo Studies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 January 2024 | Viewed by 4508
In recent years, stem cell therapy has become a very promising and advanced scientific research topic. Stem cells have the capability to self-renew and to differentiate into several cell types, and are involved in physiological regeneration processes.
In the context of tissue injury, stem cells have gained worldwide attention because of their immense potential for immunomodulation and their therapeutic function. Stem cells can migrate to tissue injury areas to contribute to immune modulation, secrete anti-inflammatory cytokines, and hide themselves from the immune system.
With so many stem cell replacement therapies currently going through clinical trials, there is a compelling need to understand the mechanisms behind a successful therapy, and one of the critical points of their discovery is to monitor and manage stem cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, and organization in vitro as well as in vivo. In this context, the use of biomaterials to manipulate stem cells providing control of their behavior and homing has received great interest, becoming a pivotal step for the development of innovative stem cell transplantation solutions.
This Special Issue aims to provide the latest updates on stem cells and their in vitro and in vivo applications in the regenerative medicine field, opening novel and advanced strategies for tissue-repairing processes and many other clinical applications.
Original articles, up-to-date review articles, and commentaries addressing this topic are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
