Stem Cells: Advanced Polymers for Stem Cell Biology and Medicine
Suwan N. Jayasinghe
While polymers have always been central to both biology and medicine, stem cells have proven their potential in repairing or replacing tissue only within the last decade. Revolutionary advancements have only been possible through collaborations between chemists, biologists, engineers, and clinical researchers. In order to elucidate how such collaborations have brought new insight to the exploration of advanced natural and synthetic polymers in conjunction with stem cells this new special series, guest-edited by Suwan N. Jayasinghe, will publish invited contributions from eminent scientists in the field.
