2011 World Stem Cell Report

More than 26 articles and 176 pages of previously unpublished insight into the forefront of regenerative medicine.

The editors of the 2011 World Stem Cell Report invited more than 26 experts to share their views on regenerative medicine strategies in the regions of North and South America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region, where stem cell research is on the forefront the biomedical research and commercialization agenda. The report serves as a reference and guide to this diverse universe of organizations and networks that influence the success of our field.

The theme of the 2011 World Stem Cell Report is “Translational Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside.” The Report provides a worldwide perspective of the issues facing the stem cell community that influence how the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine develops. This edition includes discussions of science, international perspectives, commercialization, policy, law, ethics and advocacy.

The annual World Stem Cell Report is published as a supplement to Regenerative Medicine. Through a special arrangement with our publication partners, we are able to provide free access to the 2011 World Stem Cell Report.
