This book provides the basic researcher in endocrinology with the background to work with stem cells, and in particular, diabetes, which is poised to receive the greatest benefit from stem cell therapeutics. It provides a basic understanding of stem cell biology to the basic and clinical scientist in endocrinology and offers techniques for the identification and growth of endocrine stem cells with speculation on how these cells may be used in the future to treat endocrine disease.

From the reviews:

"Stem Cells in Endocrinology considers the potential use of stem cells for the treatment of endocrine disorders. It consists of two sections, Basic Stem Cell Biology and Translational Research. ... The book as a whole is certainly of interest not only to specialists in the therapy of endocrine disorders, but also to those conducting stem cell research in general, and to motivated students." (Antonin Bukovsky, TRENDS in Endocrinology and Metabolism, Vol. 17 (6), August, 2006)
