BMC Series Focus Issues
With Stem Cell Awareness day on the 13th October this year we have compiled an article collection from across different BMC Series journals covering aspects of basic stem cell biology; in vitro differentiation studies; stem-cell based therapy studies for various conditions in animal models; technical advancements and ethical issues.
In recognition of World Patient Safety Awareness day on 17th September, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research. We have collated free-to-read content from across our journals - showcasing patient perspectives, research into the study of PPI, and engaging public partners as co-authors in research.
In this interview, our Editorial Advisor Chae-Ok Yun shares insights into her daily working life, the difficulties she had to overcome during her early steps and provides advice for your young women aspiring to become engineers.
