Special Issue "Immune Cell Mediated Tissue Regeneration"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Interests: regenerative medicine and immunology
It has been demonstrated that an immune response is essential to the initiation of tissue repair after injury but too much inflammation contributes to secondary tissue damage. Indeed, tissue repair and regeneration are tightly orchestrated by immune cells, including neutrophils, macrophages, and even T lymphocytes such as regulatory T cells. Emerging evidence suggests that immune cells can also interact with tissue stem or progenitor cells to facilitate regeneration.
This Special Issue, entitled "Immune-Cell-Mediated Tissue Regeneration", aims to discuss interdisciplinary approaches to the study of tissue repair and regeneration that combine developmental biology, regenerative biology, immunology, and biomaterial and tissue engineering. We will also delineate the mechanisms by which immune cells adopt an anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic, pro-wound-healing, and tissue-regenerating phenotype in different organ systems after injury, and highlight how some of these mechanisms could be exploited therapeutically.

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
