Book Description

The second volume in the Stem Cells series concentrates on the mechanisms of stem cell regeneration in the adult organism with a view towards understanding how lost tissue can be replaced during adulthood and aging. The second focus of this volume is on stem cell identification and manipulation, including applications in basic research, medicine, and industry. The book closes with an outlook on generalized approaches that can be used to solve legislative and ethical challenges.
