Stem Cells and Development is globally recognized as the trusted source for critical, even controversial coverage of emerging hypotheses and novel findings. With a focus on stem cells of all tissue types and their potential therapeutic applications, the Journal provides clinical, basic, and translational scientists with cutting-edge research and findings.

Stem Cells and Development coverage includes:

  • Embryogenesis and adult counterparts of this process
  • Physical processes linking stem cells, primary cell function, and structural development
  • Hypotheses exploring the relationship between genotype and phenotype
  • Development of vasculature, CNS, and other germ layer development and defects
  • Pluripotentiality of embryonic and somatic stem cells
  • The role of genetic and epigenetic factors in development

Stem Cells and Development is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Graham C. Parker, PhD, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Children's Hospital of Michigan; Senior Editor Hal E. Broxmeyer, PhD, Indiana University School of Medicine; and other leading investigators. View the entire editorial board.
