Stem Cell and Clinical Application

Posted On 2020-05-20 05:33:54

This series of Annals of Translational Medicine is dedicated to the topic of “Stem Cell and Clinical Application”. We have attempted to shed light on some of the current clinical applications, strategies, mechanisms, and unsolved problems relating to stem cell therapy. Although there are still many challenges and questions that need to be addressed, we hope this series on the clinical application of stem cells will contribute to the growth of this field of study.
