Cell, Developmental, and Stem Cell Biology

Cell, Developmental, and Stem Cell Biology focuses on the study of cells, their development, and the processes involved in the differentiation of cells into specialized cell types. It also encompasses the investigation of stem cells, which are undifferentiated cells capable of self-renewal and differentiation into various cell lineages.
