Future Science Group (FSG; London, UK) is celebrating the 15-year anniversary of the journal Regenerative Medicine with the announcement of a new Senior Editor and a special feature on partner site RegMedNet highlighting the key advances made in the field over that time.
Since the first issue of Regenerative Medicine was published in January 2006, the field has exploded; the previous 15 years have seen the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and their application in clinical trials, the first approved regenerative medicine therapy and the emerging ecosystem of clinics selling unproven and unapproved treatments.
In the last 15 years, Regenerative Medicine has grown to be one of the premier journals in this space, covering the latest translational research in regenerative medicine, with a special focus on the policy, ethics and social impact of this new technology. Key publications in recent years have covered the public perception of stem cells, challenges of dealing with ‘bad actor’ clinics and the changing nature of the stem cell ecosystem.
Coinciding with this anniversary year, FSG is delighted to announce that Professor André Terzic (Mayo Clinic, MN, USA) has joined Professor Chris Mason (AvroBio, MA, USA) as Senior Editor of the Regenerative Medicine. We feel Professor Terzic’s wealth of clinical experience will complement Professor Mason’s technological and industry expertise, and reflects the growth of the field from the bench to the bedside.
To mark 15 years of publications and to coincide with the completion of the 15th volume, the journal has partnered with RegMedNet for a special showcase, reviewing 15 years of regenerative advances and looking forward to what the next 15 years will bring. Featuring notable contributors from throughout the journal’s history, the showcase will provide insight into what has spurred the development of the field and what more can be done to ensure the patients who need it most are benefiting from this important work.
Adam Price-Evans, Managing Commissioning Editor of Regenerative Medicine, commented, “It has been a privilege to work on the journal for the last 4 years and I’ve been delighted to have this opportunity to look back on the fantastic work we’ve published thus far. Our team looks forward to working closely with Chris and André to champion regenerative medicine research and continue to develop the journal as it evolves the meet the needs of the field over the next 15 years.”
