Special Issue "Stem Cells in Eye Research and Ophthalmology—Current Advances and Future Directions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: clinical research; retina; stem cells
Understanding of stem cells and their roles in ocular physiology, cellular interaction, and tissue repair in the eye continue to intrigue researchers. Concomittantly, clinical research using stem cells in ophthalmology is establishing stem cell therapy as an increasingly important means of ameliorating ophthalmic disease and vision loss.
This Special Issue will offer basic, preclinical, and clinical articles for the readers’ review and to demonstrate that stem cells and their products such as exosomes and extracellular vesicles offer unmet research opportunities and new hope to patients suffering from blindness.
