Stem Cell Research & Therapy's first year

Stem Cell Research & Therapy, the home of translational research into stem cell therapeutics, recently celebrated its first anniversary. In an editorial marking the occasion, Editors-in-Chief Rocky Tuan and Timothy O’Brien look back at some of the highlights of the journal’s first year of publication.

Launched in March 2010, Stem Cell Research & Therapy publishes peer-reviewed open access research alongside high-quality commissioned content available by subscription. With stem cell research and its funding rarely out of the news, Stem Cell Research & Therapy provides an important forum for the dissemination and discussion of the results of such research. The journal published 50 articles in its first year of publication, and these have been well-accessed by the community.

Over the coming year we look forward to working with the international Editorial Board to build on the journal’s success, and are particularly excited about our ongoing article collections including series on stem cell niche and induced pluripotent stem cells. Do take a moment to read the editorial and let us know your thoughts via or by posting a comment.
