This hugely important volume presents in a single text many novel aspects of stem cell biology with respect to scientific endeavors and future applications. During the past few years, stem cell research has metamorphosed into distinct and specialized avenues of research. What makes this book unique is that it not only covers these varied areas of research, but examines in detail some of the key pharmacological issues that up to now have not been addressed in a single volume.
