Book Description

Essentials of Stem Cell Biology, 3rd edition (PDF) was initially developed as an accessible abridgment of the successful Handbook of Stem Cells. It serves the needs of the evolving population of researchers, scientists, practitioners, and university students who are embracing the latest advances in stem cells. This ebook combines the prerequisites for a general understanding of adult and embryonic stem cells with a presentation by the world’s experts of the latest research information about specific organ systems. Representing the combined effort of seven editors and more than 200 scholars and scientists whose pioneering work has defined our understanding of stem cells, this ebook combines the information needed for a general understanding of adult and embryonic stem cells. No area of inquiry in the field of stem cells is skipped over, from the most fundamental mechanisms and biology to early development, mesoderm, endoderm, and ectoderm, as well as methods, all the way up to the application of stem cells to particular human diseases, patient perspectives, and regulatory and ethical issues.


  • Efforts put in by winners of the Nobel Prize and other outstanding researchers from throughout the world
  • Displayed in full color with glossary, highlighted phrases, and bibliographic entries taking the place of references
  • Includes two completely new chapters that are focused solely on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and were authored by the researchers who were responsible for making the first discovery.
  • Edited by a prominent author and researcher from throughout the world, this book provides a comprehensive account of stem cells in research; in an application; and as the topic of political debate.




“…meets the requirements of the ever-growing population of researchers, clinicians, scientists, and students who are enthusiastic about the most recent developments in stem cells…

No topic in the field of stem cells is left uncovered, ranging from fundamental biology to early development, mesoderm, endoderm, and ectoderm, as well as methods, stem cell applications, specific regulation and ethics, human diseases, and patient perspectives. “From basic biology to early development, mesoderm, endoderm, and ectoderm.” — Anticancer Research Volume 34, Year 2014

This ebook provides a comprehensive analysis of recent research as well as the therapeutic possibilities in the field of stem cell biology. The discussion will center on the therapeutic potential of stem cells, and will include a review of the present level of stem cell knowledge as well as an examination of stem cell therapies in a number of different tissues and organs… This ebook’s in-depth discussion of the topic is beneficial to researchers of any discipline who are interested in pursuing research in the field. — Doody’s; March 7, 2014; website:
