Can stem cell biology truly change our lives? The SAGE Encyclopedia of Stem Cell Research, Second Edition Available in Print and Online

July 16, 2015

Los Angeles, CA. The promising field of stem cell research is full of new procedures and exciting medical breakthroughs even with all its political and religious obstacles. In the seven years since the first edition of the SAGE Encyclopedia of Stem Cell Research was published, executive orders from the Obama administration reversed previous barriers to research, and, as a result, stem cell biology has experienced wide-ranging progress. That's why it was vital for SAGE to publish an updated Second Edition of the encyclopedia, one that expands on the information in the first edition and presents more than 270 new and updated articles.

Making major scientific topics accessible to nonscientists, this new edition brings readers up-to-date with where stem cell biology stands today, including new and evolving ethical, religious, legal, social, and political perspectives. Readers will find entries on the latest research in regeneration and regrowth of cells for human organs, bone, muscle, skin; on the major people and institutions involved in stem cell research; on the position of stem cell research in all U.S. states and around the world, and so much more, all organized in a user-friendly Reader's Guide under headings such as:

  • Adult Stem Cells, Cancer Stem Cells
  • Clinical Trials in the United States and the World
  • Cloning
  • Ethics, Legal Issues
  • Industry, Institutions, Organizations, People
  • Methods to Study Stem Cells
  • Politics, Religion
  • Stem Cell Applications, Stem Cell Biology

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Stem Cell Research, Second Edition comes with all the extras for researchers, including: Further Readings, Cross References, a Chronology, a Resource Guide, an Index and a Glossary. Because this second edition will serve as a universal resource for all those interested in the current status of stem cell biology, it belongs on the shelves of all academic and public libraries. A FREE 30-day online trial of SAGE Knowledge, including The SAGE Encyclopedia of Stem Cell Research, Second Edition, is available at

Editor Eric E. Bouhassira is the Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Professor of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
