This book presents the current status and a future perspective of cardiac regeneration using pluripotent stem cells. To achieve cardiac regeneration using iPS cells, research workers have to understand many aspects of iPS cells, such as iPS cell generation methods, cardiomyocyte differentiation protocols, cardiomyocyte characterization methods, and tissue engineering and so on. This book is written by many top researchers with brand-new data in these fields and will certainly help readers to get a comprehensive picture of iPS cells in cardiac regeneration.
