Stem Cells: from Single Cells to the Clinic

Recent technological progress has facilitated the study of how embryos develop, how embryonic cells transition between different states, how adult stem cells are maintained and differentiate, at unprecedented resolution. The resulting advances in our understanding of stem cell and developmental biology have opened the door to the engineering of complex tissues and the use of stem cells for therapeutic purposes.

In this collection, we highlight recent papers published across Nature Portfolio journals on topics including embryonic development and stem cells, clinical and translational research, stem cell-based tissue engineering, and tissue stem cells.

This Collection is open for submissions from all authors – and not by invitation only – on the condition that the manuscripts fall within the scope of the Collection and the participating journals more generally.

All manuscripts will be considered for publication according to the editorial policies of the specific participating journal which they are submitted through. Visit Nature portfolio’s Collections guidelines for more details.

When submitting your manuscript to a  participating journal via our online submission system, please choose the appropriate Collection title from the drop-down menu on the submission form. Please be sure to express your interest in the Collection in your cover letter. Please only submit to one journal, but note authors have the option to transfer to another participating journal  following the editors’ recommendation.
