We propose to use zebrafish, a highly regenerative vertebrate amenable to powerful genetic and imaging techniques, to understand how stem cells build and then maintain and repair the head skeleton. The long-term goal is to use foundational knowledge acquired in the zebrafish to develop new regenerative medicine treatments for human craniofacial diseases. Toggle navigation.

Stem cells have the unique ability to repair and replenish adult tissues and are now being utilised in cutting-edge medical therapies. The field of stem cell biology focuses on the full spectrum of cell behaviour from the stem cell state to the fully differentiated condition. With contributions from a coterie of renowned experts in the field of craniofacial research Stem cells in craniofacial development and regeneration should become the vade mecum of aspiring researchers, developmental biologists, tissue engineers and dentists.
This comprehensive text can also be utilised effectively by oral and maxillofacial surgeons and colleagues in related fields. This edition reflects the latest trends, concepts and innovations in the field of stem cell regeneration. The first section of the book is divided into nine chapters discussing the embryogenesis, morphogenesis and regeneration of craniofacial tissues and organs. Cranial neural crest cells, temporomandibular joint and craniofacial muscle development are high-lighted.

In addition, paragraphs are devoted to understanding the formation, proliferation, migration and differentiation of neural crest cells. Various contributors explain how craniofacial anomalies occur and discuss craniosynostosis and Treacher Collins Syndrome.
Divided into five sections, chapters build from basic introductory information on the definition and characteristics of stem cells to more indepth explorations of their role in craniofacial development. Section I covers embryonic and adult stem cells with a focus on the craniofacial region, while sections II-IV cover the development and regeneration of craniofacial bone, tooth, temporomandibular joint, salivary glands and muscle. Concluding chapters describe the current, cutting-edge research utilizing stem cells for craniofacial tissue bioengineering to treat lost or damaged tissue.
The authoritative resource for dentistry students as well as craniofacial researchers at the graduate and post-graduate level, Stem Cells, Craniofacial Development and Regeneration explores the rapidly expanding field of stem cells and regeneration from the perspective of the dentistry and craniofacial community, and points the way forward in areas of tissue bioengineering and craniofacial stem cell therapies.
