Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Arguably among the most exciting research areas, stem cell biology recently burst out with extraordinary thrill and promise. Because of its accessibility, epidermis was among the first organs targeted by stem cell researchers. Several crucial discoveries relating to stem cells biology originated in skin research, the origins of cancers, the influence of the niche, role in wound healing and use in gene replacement therapy, to name a few. The field is fast-moving, but sufficiently mature to warrant a special inclusive and comprehensive overview to define its range, challenges and future directions.

The goal of this special issue is to provide a summary of the field, describe its impact as well as introduce the recent advances in the Molecular Research of Epidermal Stem Cells. Both keratinocyte and melanocyte stem cells will be addressed, mainly those in the hair follicles, but the extrafollicular ones as well. This issue will address the markers of epidermal stem cells, the role of the niche, the regulatory processes governing quiescence and emergence into proliferation, epigenetics, interface of stem cells with cancer and wound healing, and their use in treating dermatologic disorders.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF.
