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 hope you all have had nice holidays. After a long summer break I am ready to continue my blogging activity on animal regeneration. As I have been doing in the last several months I will publish a new post every Thursday, starting this week. I hope you will enjoy them. And please, feel free to comment on any aspect of them in order that we all can promote some helpful and interesting discussions.
The registration for the 2nd European Meeting on Planarian Biology that will be held in Dresden, September 1-4, 2013 is now open. If you are a freak of planarian regeneration, are willing to know more about these amazing animals or are looking for an excellent model to start your own research on regeneration, visit the meeting website at http://europlannet.org/IMPB2013 . The most updated research on the field of planarian regeneration will be presented in a friendly atmosphere that should help to keep building planarians as an attractive model in which to study regeneration.
The next Gordon Research Conference on Tissue Repair & Regeneration will be held in Colby-Sawyer College, New London, NH on June 16-21, 2013. Application deadline, May 19, 2013. For more information and registration visit the website: http://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2013&program=tissuerep
