Scientists from around the world, with heavy representation from Harvard University, report on their research on stem cells. Among the topics are the potential of bone marrow stomal stem cells to repair bone defects and fractures, diminishing gene expression in human mesenchymal stem cells by the mutation of focal adhesion kinase signaling, and differentiating multiple neuronal subtypes from mouse embryonic stem cells. In his foreword, Koka describes the inauguration of the Journal of Stem Cells, which does not charge contributors for color figures and illustrations; he is unclear whether the articles here are reprinted from it, or the volume comprises the first issue.
