    Hello there,

    I was hoping that someone could give me a few review articles to learn more about current research on two fields that I'm interested in pursuing further: organ regeneration and bone marrow transplantation.

    I realize that this is very broad, but I was hoping that you guys could help me get started.

    Also, I would like to know which hospitals/research centers are doing the newest type of work in these fields.

    Thanks for your help.

    Have you tried a Pubmed search using some MeSH keywords? Do you know how to use MeSH keywords and find relevant terms?

    You can find relevant MeSH keywords here:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh?term=regeneration

    The MeSH keyword search is integrated into Pubmed.

    Try this pubmed search:
    "Regeneration"[Mesh] OR "bone marrow transplantation"[MeSH] AND "review"[Publication Type]

    So don't know what kind of organ you are interested in... but the MeSH tree looks like this:

    All MeSH Categories
    Phenomena and Processes Category
    Biological Phenomena
    Biological Processes
    Regeneration
    Bone Remodeling
    Bone Regeneration +​
    Liver Regeneration
    Nerve Regeneration
    Spinal Cord Regeneration​
    Wound Healing
    Cicatrix
    Fracture Healing​


    There is a MeSH keyword for bone marrow transplant. It is "Bone Marrow Transplantation"
    All MeSH Categories
    Analytical, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Techniques and Equipment Category
    Surgical Procedures, Operative
    Transplantation
    Tissue Transplantation
    Bone Marrow Transplantation​

    There's a lot of stuff being done in Boston (Harvard, MIT, MGH, Brigham, etc) on tissue engineering with the ultimate goal of designing synthetic organs. Two guys who are especially worth looking into are Robert Langer (MIT Bioengineering) and Jay Vacanti (Pediatric Surgery).
