This special issue of Tissue Engineering, Part C: Methods will focus on the key role animal models play in moving basic observations in stem cells and tissue engineering from conceptual to clinical practice. The interplay between existing mouse models, induced large animal models, genetically modified pig models, and companion animals with naturally occurring diseases will be examined in detail through reviews and original manuscripts.
The goal of this special issue is to highlight novel research contributions that accentuate the diversity of ways that research using animal models are impacting the field.
We are currently seeking high-quality original research articles covering topics such as:
- The use of large animal models in tissue engineering
- The use of animals with naturally occurring diseases in tissue engineering
- Development and characterization of new animal models for tissue engineering
- Reviews focused on the role animal models play in tissue engineering of specific organ systems
Contributions will receive prompt and thorough peer review and will be published online (epub) ahead of print after acceptance. Please refer to our Instructions for Authors before submitting your manuscript for consideration.
