Cell biology and stem cell research

Section edited by Prof. Louis Penning

This section deals with exploratory and basic science research in both cellular and regenerative medicine research that has a focus on improving the understanding of animal health/disease. Examples of topics that are of interest to this section include cellular and molecular biology, stem cells, platelet-rich plasma, development of novel regenerative therapies and methodologies for their clinical application. The translation of research from the bench to the patient, and from the veterinary field to the human field is all of keen interest to this specialty section.
