Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
I am pleased to announce an upcoming Special Issue of Cells entitled “Schwann Cells: From Formation to Clinical Significance”. This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of the key topics in Schwann cell (SC) research, ranging from the latest discoveries in SC biology and development to the most recent applications of SC-based strategies for promoting the repair and regeneration of peripheral nerves. This Special Issue will be directed to a broad audience of both basic and clinical scientists and will address, among other things, such key topics as SC development, myelination, and remyelination, stem-cell-derived SCs, SC-enriched nerve prostheses, neuregulin/ErbB signaling, and SC-targeted gene therapy. The proposed deadline is November 30 2020.
Prof. Stefano Geuna
Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
