Regeneration Journal

This week I am not going to comment on any specific paper on regeneration but rather publicize the launch of a new journal dedicated to this fascinating field of regeneration. The new journal is called Regeneration and will be published by John Wiley & Sons (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)2052-4412). The Editor-in-Chief is Susan V. Bryant a prestigious researcher in the field of limb regeneration in amphibians. The associate editors include Kiyokazu Agata, Enrique Amaya, Cheng-Ming Chuong, Ken Muneoka, Ken Poss and Elliot Meyerowitz. Regeneration is an open access journal and will be the first journal to be dedicated exclusively to regeneration and tissue repair in animals and plants. Therefore the regeneration community have now an excellent tool to disseminate our results in a more compact way that should make more visible our advances and research and, at the same time, attract more people to this field. Hopefully this journal will be useful also to establish bridges between naturally occurring regeneration and the need to enhance assisted regeneration. I really hope that we can all contribute to the success of this journal. I will keep you posted when the first issue is available.

I am a Biologist and Professor at the University of Barcelona. I do my research on a fascinating animal: freshwater planarians. You can cut them in as many pieces as you want and each piece will regenerate a complete new flatworm in very few days. In this blog I will keep you updated on the latest news on the field of animal regeneration. You will be able to follow the latest research on how planarians, axolotls, newts, cnidarians and other animals are able to regenerate parts of their bodies
