Improved healthcare has resulted in dramatic demographic changes in developed countries, causing an increase in the prevalence of diseases associated with aging. Many significant human diseases arising from the loss or dysfunction of specific cell types in the body, such as Parkinson's disease, diabetes and cancer, are becoming increasingly common. Stem cell research and regenerative medicine offers unique opportunities for developing new therapeutic approaches to prevent and treat these debilitating and life-threatening diseases, and new ways to explore fundamental questions of biology. The current optimism over potential stem cell therapies is driven by new understandings of genetics and developmental biology. Gradually, the curative and regenerative potential that lies in harnessing stem cells is being realized. Regenerative Medicine (ISSN: 1746-0751) provides a forum to address the important challenges and advances in stem cell research and regenerative medicine, delivering this essential information in concise, clear and attractive article formats vital to an increasingly time-constrained community.
