About this book


Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology is the newest installment in the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine series, to which it adeptly contributes as it offers a selection of carefully chosen topics so that the readers can understand recent advances in the field of the hematopoietic stem cells and hemato/lymphopoiesis. Each chapter is not a simple review of the topic, but rather an in-depth insight, which allows the reader to attain a multifaceted knowledgebase on hematopoietic stem cells. The chapters, which are authored by the leading experts in the field, cover characteristics of the hematopoietic stem cells at the cellular and molecular levels, offers details in regulatory mechanisms of differentiation mechanisms of hematopoietic stem cells to more mature blood cell, and discusses abnormal hematopoiesis that leads to leukemia. Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology serves the inquiring minds of researchers, graduate students and post doctorate fellows as it expertly addresses the ever-growing field of hematopoietic stem cells and hemato/lymphopoiesis.

Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“The text is exceptionally well written by 23 contributors from Japan, the United States, France, and Switzerland­­–– all experts in their respective fields of hematopoietic stem cell biology and lymphocyte physiology. … Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology will be most helpful and interesting to readers wanting a current update of the field. It is well indexed and well referenced, although it includes few figures, schemas, or photographs to help elucidate the text.” (Paulette Mehta, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 304 (18), November, 2010)
