iPSC Derived Progenitors, Volume Thirteen in the Advances in Stem Cell Biology series is a timely collection of information and new discoveries in the field of stem cell biology. The book addresses the importance of induced pluripotent stems cells and how can they be differentiated into different progenitors. Progenitors cells are often the first-step to making more differentiating cell types. This volume addresses iPSCs derived from bone, dental pulp, craniofacial, neural stem cells, otic, cardiac, and much more. The volume is written for researchers and scientists in stem cell therapy, cell biology, regenerative medicine, organ transplantation, and is contributed by world-renowned authors.

About the Editor

Alexander Birbrair

Dr. Alexander Birbrair received his bachelor’s biomedical degree from Santa Cruz State University in Brazil. He completed his PhD in Neuroscience, in the field of stem cell biology, at the Wake Forest School of Medicine under the mentorship of Osvaldo Delbono. Then, he joined as a postdoc in stem cell biology at Paul Frenette’s laboratory at Albert Einstein School of Medicine in New York. In 2016, he was appointed faculty at Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil, where he started his own lab. His laboratory is interested in understanding how the cellular components of different tissues function and control disease progression. His group explores the roles of specific cell populations in the tissue microenvironment by using state-of-the-art techniques. His research is funded by the Serrapilheira Institute, CNPq, CAPES, and FAPEMIG. In 2018, Alexander was elected affiliate member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences (ABC), and, in 2019, he was elected member of the Global Young Academy (GYA). He is the Founding Editor and Editor-in-Chief of Current Tissue Microenvironment Reports, and Associate Editor of Molecular Biotechnology. Alexander also serves in the editorial board of several other international journals: Stem Cell Reviews and Reports, Stem Cell Research, Stem Cells and Development, and Histology and Histopathology.
