Tissue stem cells and their medical applications have become a major focus of research over the past decade. With 16 full-color illustrations, this reference provides a thorough and up-to-date overview of the current and emerging technologies for stem cell research and transplantation. Divided into three sections covering general issues, adult stem cells within specific tissues, and clinical applications, this source studies advances in bone marrow transplantation, cancer development modeling, tumor analysis, and gene therapy.


"…The book strikes an excellent balance between theoretical discussion and

experimental biology. Each chapter provides a helpful introduction, thorough

discussion of the literature, and complete list of current references….This

book provides a useful summary of current information and a welcome source of

inspiration for students and scientists interested in adult stem cell biology."
