Mesenchymal stem cells
Journal of Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering Open access Journal covers special section Mesenchymal stem cells are stromal cells that are mutipotent which can differentiate into any cell types. This Special section highlights on every aspect of stem cell research like developing methodologies for isolating and culturing MSC'S, Tissue grafting, homing mechanisms, host immune response to implanted cells. It also includes the use of mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of disorders like cardiovascular diseases, bone and cartilage repair, spinal cord injury and autoimmune diseases.
Journal of Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering Open access Journal covers special section Biomaterials is a complex system which includes mesoscopic, molecular interactions and their potential applications. This section mainly includes developing new scaffolds for regenerative medicine, cell-materials interface engineering, biomaterials characterization, self-assembled biomimetic copolymers, stem cell therapy and nanomaterials for biosensing applications.
Biomedicine and Drug Delivery
Journal of Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering Open access Journal covers special section Biomedicine is a branch of medical Science that applies biology and other natural-science principles for clinical practice, provides the new ideas for conquering the human health problems. It involves study of (patho-) physiological processes and molecular interactions. This section also attracts drug delivery systems including oral, pulmonary, nasal, parenteral and transdermal, antibody targeting; protein/peptide delivery, DNA, oligonucleotide and siRNA delivery and modes of entry such as controlled release systems, microcapsules, vesicles, liposomes and macromolecular conjugates.
Journal of Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering Open access Journal covers special section Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels which plays an important role in the development, reproduction and tissue repair. This section focuses on novel therapeutic approaches for promoting or inhibiting angiogenesis as well as new markers and techniques for disease diagnosis and prognosis.
