Anaerobiosis and Stemness: An evolutionary paradigm provides a context for understanding the many complexities and evolutionary features of stem cells and the clinical implications of anaerobiosis stem cells. Combining theoretical and experimental knowledge, the authors provide a broad understanding of how the absence or low concentration of oxygen can play an influential role in the maintenance and self-renewal of stem cells and stem cell differentiation. This understanding has clinical implications for the fields of regenerative medicine, cancer biology and transplantation, as well as cell engineering and cell therapy. Anaerobiosis and Stemness is an important resource for stem cell and developmental biologists alike, as well as oncologists, cancer biologists, and researchers using stem cells for regeneration. * Highlights the molecular and evolutionary features of stem cells which make them so important to all biological research* Explores methods of isolation, characterization, activation, and maintenance of stem cells* Includes models for clinical application in regenerative medicine, cancer therapy, and transplantation

About Author

Zoran Ivanovic is Scientific Director of French Blood Institute for the regions of Aquitaine and Limousin (Bordeaux, France) and Head of R&D Cell Engineering Research Laboratory. He is also the Group Leader ("Adult stem cells ) in UMR 5164 CNRS/University of Bordeaux. He received his MD, MSc (system and comparative physiology) and DSc (experimental hematology) degrees at Belgrade University, and the highest French Degree "HDR (Habilitation Diriger les Recherches) at Bordeaux 2 University. He specialized in Transfusion (Bordeaux 2 University) and in Cell Therapy (Paris 7 University). Research Professor at Institute for Medical Research of Belgrade University, former Associate Professor of Hematology at Limoges and Bordeaux Universities (1999-2002), he has been, since 2011, guest professor at the Medical Faculty of Nis University. Dr Ivanovic obtained several grants in the field of cord blood and adult stem cell research. His group studies the anaerobic proliferation of stem cells and develops clinical-scale ex-vivo expansion procedures, pre-conditioning of stem cells for transplantation as well as new approaches of stem and progenitor cell conservation in hypothermia. He published 123 articles and book chapters, realized 150 meeting communications and supervised several PhD and master theses. He serves as Academic Editor of PLoS One as well as reviewer for many scientific journals. Marija Vlaski Lafarge is staff scientist in R&D Cell Engineering Research Laboratory of French Blood Institute for the regions of Aquitaine and Limousin (Bordeaux, France) and in UMR 5164 CNRS/University of Bordeaux. She obtained her PhD degree at Faculty of Sciences (Cell physiology), University of Belgrade, Serbia. Her scientific activity is devoted to stem cell metabolism and physiology studies. Dr. Vlaski Lafarge presented her work in articles, book chapters and meeting communications. She participated in the grants preparation, reviewed several scientific manuscripts, and governed many student's research projects.
