Aims & Scope

npj Regenerative Medicine considers research covering ways to help the human body repair, replace, and regenerate damaged tissues and organs. 

The journal covers a broad range of topics including but not limited to: 

  • Applications of stem cell biology and therapies for tissue repair, regeneration, and organ transplantation
  • Tissue engineering and advances in biomaterials including acellular approaches for tissue repair and regeneration
  • Cell-based therapies and transplantation
  • Gene therapy and gene editing
  • Studies on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying tissue regeneration, repair, and remodeling in classical and non-classical model organisms. 
  • Strategies for modulating the immune response, promoting immune tolerance, and preventing rejection in regenerative medicine therapies
  • Bioengineering and regenerative medicine technologies, including innovations in 3D bioprinting technologies and organoids
  • Integrating regenerative medicine approaches with rehabilitation therapies 
  • Translational research on preclinical models, animal studies, and clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of regenerative medicine therapies
  • Applications of regenerative medicine approaches for treating age-related degenerative diseases
  • Regenerative medicine ethics and policy

The journal offers more choice to Nature Portfolio authors who are seeking a fully open-access and more inclusive platform for publishing their work. The journal is led by regenerative medicine experts who collaborate to cultivate high-quality research. As part of the npj Series, this journal focuses on fostering global partnerships with the research community and other Springer Nature journals.
