Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is a collection of selected papers from the 49th Japanese Society for Organ Preservation and Biology (JSOPB) (http://jognbio.umin.jp/). The Journal of Clinical Medicine (JCM) is providing an opportunity to publish selected data presented at the annual meeting.

The JSOPB was founded in 1974 with the aim of studying organ preservation and rapidly developed during the 1990s following the participation of researchers in various fields of medicine, pharmacology, engineering, veterinary medicine, and basic science. Currently, the JSOPB has more than 700 members and operates under the direction of its president, Prof. Mamoru Kusaka.

The most outstanding presentations made at the 49th annual meeting of the JSOPB—held on 20–21 October 2023, in Hokkaido, Japan, under the supervision of Prof. Naoto Matsuno (Asahikawa Medical University School of Medicine Medical Course Clinical Medicine Surgery, Asahikawa, Japan)—were selected and given the opportunity to be published in this Special Issue of JCM.

One of the vital objectives of the annual meeting of the JSOPB is to exchange new research outcomes and create new therapeutic concepts. Therefore, the aim of the present Special Issue is as follows:

  • Organ preservation and transplantation;
  • Organ/tissue engineering;
  • Stem cell therapy.
