Japanese Society for Regenerative Medicine: Introduction
Abstract:Regenerative medicine is a newly developing science and technology, including tissue engineering, cell therapy, biomaterials, growth factors, and gene therapy. Under the influence of such a worldwide trend, we reorganized the Japan Research Meeting of Cell Therapy that had contributed to the development of cell therapy research in Japan for the past 8 years, and we newly established the Japanese Society for Regenerative Medicine (JSRM) in 2002.

More about this publication?
- Cell Transplantation publishes original, peer-reviewed research and review articles on the subject of cell transplantation and its application to human diseases. To ensure high-quality contributions from all areas of transplantation, separate section editors and editorial boards have been established. Articles deal with a wide range of topics including physiological, medical, preclinical, tissue engineering, and device-oriented aspects of transplantation of nervous system, endocrine, growth factor-secreting, bone marrow, epithelial, endothelial, and genetically engineered cells, among others. Basic clinical studies and immunological research papers are also featured. To provide complete coverage of this revolutionary field, Cell Transplantation will report on relevant technological advances, and ethical and regulatory considerations of cell transplants. Cell Transplantation is now an Open Access journal starting with volume 18 in 2009, and therefore there will be an inexpensive publication charge, which is dependent on the number of pages, in addition to the charge for color figures. This will allow work to be disseminated to a wider audience and also entitle the corresponding author to a free PDF, as well as prepublication of an unedited version of the manuscript.
