About this book


As regenerative medicine involves replacing diseased cells, tissues or organs, or repairing tissues in vivo, the manipulation of stem cells underlie its goals.  In Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine: Methods and Protocols, leading experts in the field provide an updated representation of the landscape of stem cell-based therapies in a wide spectrum of tissue systems and ontogenic stages, from the isolation and culture of stem cells to their actual use in vivo. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, these chapters include brief introductions to the topic, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, readily reproducible, step-by-step laboratory protocols, and tips for troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and easy-to-use, Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine: Methods and Protocols is certain to contribute greatly to the definition of standardized procedures for the manipulation of somatic and embryonic stem cells in research and clinical applications.
