Cartilage repair and regeneration

Articular cartilage can be damaged by trauma or degraded by different forms of arthritis. Once damaged, cartilage is challenging to repair and currently impossible to fully regenerate. Advances including the discovery of new types of skeletal stem cells and the introduction of gene therapy approaches to repair damaged cartilage are placing cartilage repair and regeneration in the spotlight.

This Collection contains Research, Reviews and News articles from several Nature journals that cover the latest advances in basic cartilage research, as well as insights into cartilage repair and potential regeneration strategies.
