The book covers a wide
range of issues related to new developments and innovations in cell-based
therapies discussed in basic and clinical chapters from authors around the world
involved in stem cell studies and research. It thereby complements and extends
the basic coverage of stem cells, such as mesenchymal stem cells, effect of stem
cells on aging, cover hematopoietic stem cells, storage and cryopreservation,
issues related to clinical applications such as haploidentical transplants and
use of stem cells for the treatment of Huntingtons disease.
This note is designed to introduce students to the principals of
cellular and molecular biology, genetics, and evolution. It is intended for
biology majors intending to take more advanced courses later in their academic
careers. Emphasis is on cellular structure and function, metabolism, and
replication. Additional topics covered will include genetics, biotechnology, and
Cell biology is a
multidisciplinary scientific field that its modern expansion in new knowledge.
This book is a compilation of inspiring reviews/original studies, which are
divided into sections: New Methods in Cell Biology, Molecular and Cellular
Regulatory Mechanisms, and Cellular Basis of Disease and Therapy.
