Welcome to World Journal of Stem Cells


The World Journal of Stem Cells (WJSC) is a leading academic journal devoted to reporting the latest, cutting-edge research progress and findings of basic research and clinical practice in the field of stem cells.  It was launched on December 31, 2009 and is published trimonthly (12 issues annually) by BPG, the world's leading professional clinical medical journal publishing company.
