Stem Cell-Biomaterial Interactions for Tissue Engineering

Description

The combination of stem cells and biomaterials offers promising perspectives in clinical practice to replace tissues and organs. But the clinical trials are still not completely satisfactory. The success of tissue engineering strategies requires the synergetic efforts from multidisciplinary research fields including stem cells, biomaterials, and growth factors. Furthermore, in order to achieve the regenerative effects, we need to find out what happens exactly when the stem cells are seeded onto the biomaterials and what the stem-cell fate will be both in vitro and in vivo.

We invite investigators to submit original research and review articles to contribute to the fast-evolving research filed of stem cell-biomaterial interactions and the development of the clinically effective tissue engineering strategies. We are interested in the tissue engineering research work in terms of stem cell biology; biomaterial properties; stem cell-biomaterial applications, in particular cell migration and in vivo tracking of implanted cell on the biomaterials; cellular and molecular pathways influenced by the biomaterials, innovative biomaterials combined with spatial distribution of molecules and cells, and imaging methods to track the stem cells.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Stem cells research for tissue engineering applications
  • Biomaterial research and scaffold development for tissue engineering applications
  • The interactions of stem cells and biomaterials
  • The cellular and molecular mechanisms of the stem cells influenced by the biomaterials
  • Imaging methods for in vivo tracking of the implanted stem cells on the biomaterials
  • Innovative therapeutic applications for tissue and organ replacements
