About this book


This invaluable resource explores the regenerative potential of stem cells in the nervous system, with a focus on clinical applications. The expertly authored chapters discuss cell-based therapies for spinal cord injury and regeneration, traumatic brain injury, glioblastoma, Parkinson's Disease, ischemic stroke, cell banking, human embryonic stem cells and related concerns, harvesting of adipose tissue, and more. These topics are contextualized within a discussion of future directions of these therapies.

Neurological Regeneration, part of Springer’s Stem Cells in Clinical Applications series, is essential reading for scientists, researchers, advanced students and clinicians working in stem cells, neurology, regenerative medicine or tissue engineering.

About the editors

Phuc Van Pham received his Ph.D. in Human Physiology from Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He is currently a Professor of Biology at Vietnam National University and Acting Director of the Laboratory of Stem Cell Research and Application. He is a longstanding lecturer and translational scientist at the University, and is a member of several societies and journal editorial boards focused on stem cells.

Dr. Pham and his colleagues have established one of the first multidisciplinary stem cell centers in Vietnam, and he has successfully launched an array of technologies in stem cell isolations. His research interests include stem cell isolation, stem cell therapy, mesenchymal stem cells, cancer stem cells, immunotherapy and regenerative medicine and he has published extensively in these areas.

After many years of experience as an embryologist, cell biologist, and molecular biologist, collaborating with leading researchers in Singapore, Japan, and the United States, Dr. Pham is a student again, keen to reach beyond the traditional boundaries of biology.
