Neural Stem Cells in the Adult Brain: From Benchside to Clinic

Description

Increasing evidence indicates that neural stem cells (NSCs) play an important role in sustaining cellular homeostasis and brain tissue restoration. Understanding all mechanisms that control and modulate the function of NSC is a crucial property for the design of therapies against chronic neurodegenerative processes. Stem Cells International invites authors to submit papers for this special issue. The special issue is aimed to provide a forum for publication of original peer-reviewed manuscripts that report novel research findings in adult neural stem cell research, full-length research, and review articles.

Stem Cells International welcomes original articles and concise reviews regarding the relevant data of NSC and progenitor cells from the basic research to patient care. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Derivation, characterization, and differentiation of neural stem cells
  • Cell banking
  • Cell tracking
  • Cell delivery vehicles
  • Therapeutic potential
  • Translational preclinical studies (animal models in vivo or in vitro experiments)
  • Imaging
  • Cancer stem cells
  • Tissue engineering and biomaterials for neural repair
  • Applications for cell-based strategies in pathological conditions
  • Stem cell transplantation for brain repair
  • Clinical applications (phase I/II clinical trials and/or negative clinical results)

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/sci/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
