The Engineered Gut: Targeting Intestinal Stem Cells, the Stem Cell Niche, and Prospects for Tissue Engineering

The use of stem cells and scaffolding biomaterials has enabled the generation of three-dimensional organoid cultures of the digestive system (gastrointestinal tract, liver, and pancreas). These organoids combine cellular elements of the epithelium, musculature, nervous, and immune systems. They have enabled major advances in understanding of digestive functions in health and disease states. The American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology solicits articles that examine mechanisms of physiological control, disease, and therapy using organoid cultures derived from human and animal tissues.

All manuscripts should be submitted online via eJournalPress. During the online submission process, under the “Keywords & Special Sections” tab, please use the “Category” drop-down menu and select “Call for Papers: The Engineered Gut: Targeting Intestinal Stem Cells, the Stem Cell Niche, and Prospects for Tissue Engineering”.

Manuscripts will undergo normal peer review as they are received. Accepted manuscripts will be published online as they are accepted. Articles published from this Call for Papers will be highlighted at the time of publication. The collection may also include specially commissioned review or research articles related to the topic.

Manuscripts can be submitted anytime, but to be eligible for inclusion in this Call for Papers, manuscripts must be submitted by October 1, 2018.
