About this Research Topic
The central goal of regenerative medicine is to replace damaged or diseased tissue with cells that are integrated and functioning optimally. Stem cell-based therapy is restricted by the limited availability of cell sources, the excessive cost, and the anticipated difficulties of clinical translation and ethical approval. Some promising alternatives are to incite the patient's innate ability of tissue repairs such as in situ tissue regeneration, which has the potential to provide new therapeutic options for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. These innovative cellular therapies are also contained in our research topic.
Authors are invited to submit a manuscript. Relevant topics of interest to this special section include (but are not limited to):
• Application of cellular therapies for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, such as wound healing, fracture repair, et al;
