Amsterdam, NL – Did you discover the StemJournal newsletter? It will be dispatched more regularly in 2021 to deliver the latest journal news directly to your inbox and provide inspiration for you to submit your research to the journal. The latest mailing includes news of our recently published Research Article and a call for submissions!

As StemJournal (STJ) is still a new journal, we are actively seeking submissions to be considered for publication. Work is going on in the background, with the help of the Editorial Board, to get the word out there to researchers and encourage them to submit papers and protocols for consideration. We are also continually developing aspects of the journal and components of its parent StemHub, and we will inform you of the latest news via our newsletter.

Co-Editor-in-Chief Niels Geijsen comments: "Our goals are to keep pace with developments in this burgeoning field and lower the barrier to publishing truly integrative biomedical research on stem cells. Our intention is to provide an environment uniquely positioned to publish important innovative research as well as foundational knowledge that is sharable and reusable across disciplines." 

Latest Newsletter

In our latest newsletter – view it here – we call for submissions to our journal. We are inviting submissions across the full gamut of content types, whether you wish to submit a new Review, Research Article, Protocol, Position Paper, or Poster Report. Discover full details on how to submit your research on our website. Why not consider submitting your next paper to StemJournal?

Alongside this, we are thrilled to announce the publication of first journal article in 2021 – needless to say this is open access and available to all to read, download, and share. This paper is a landmark one as it is the first ever published Research Article in StemJournal and focuses on intestinal organoids. Discover more below!

Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Organoids as a Model of Intestinal Xenobiotic Metabolism

The human intestine is the site of absorption and first-pass metabolism for oral intake. Assessment of absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity of xenobiotics has transformed the understanding of in vivo pharmacology. However, these processes are difficult to recapitulate in vitro. In this study, a simple protocol was developed for the generation of mature functional intestinal organoids from human pluripotent stem cells under xenogeneic-free conditions. The team sought to characterize transcription level in drug transporters and metabolism and evaluate CYP3A4 catalytic function of the organoids. This model provides a novel platform for pharmacological testing.

Immunostaining of organoids with cell nuclei were counterstained

 

STEMRXIV: PREPRINTS PORTAL

Did you see the latest component of StemHub? Our preprint portal StemRxiv is available on stemjnl.org. You can check out the options for transferring your preprint to StemJournal. You can also search for stem cell preprints directly from this website, which allows you to: (a) search for stem cell content via a single point of access; and (b) search preprints by general topics and/or predefined categories.

The unique aspect of StemRxiv is that it is a dedicated portal for stem cell researchers to discover the latest research findings before they are published in peer-reviewed journals. It is the one place to visit to uncover the latest updates from the area of stem cell research that is of interest to you.
