2020 collection: Stem Cells
Welcome to Development’s 2020 subject collection on Stem Cells
Stem cells are inextricably linked with developmental biology. They underpin the formation and maintenance of our tissues, and are activated after injury to enable repair. This subject collection highlights a selection of content from Development’s Stem Cells & Regeneration section from the past year. In order to showcase the great breadth of research that we publish, we have chosen articles that span topics including pluripotency, cell fate specification and directed differentiation, as well as systems such as micropatterns and organoids.
We hope you enjoy reading Development’s ‘Stem Cells’ subject collection. It comes at a time when the field is growing faster and nearer than ever to realising the promise of stem cell-based therapies and disease modelling. At the same time, and as evidenced here, it remains essential that we continue to study the basic principles of stem cells in order to better fulfil this promise.
