Special Issue Introduction
My commitment to the preparation of the special edition is evident, as the trend of scalp hair transplantation is a hot topic that puts the interaction between various specialities in perspective aiming at the future improvement of human hair transplantation. Therefore, I invited 2 co-editors: Dr. Christian Bisanga and Prof. Colin Jahoda. The former is a transplant surgeon and skillful practitioner who has come up with innovative solutions for African scalp transplants. Prof. Colin Jahoda has been active for many years in the field of cell biology applied to the hair follicle. Both immediately agreed to assist me in this task and I am grateful to both of them. Alongside fundamental experiments, Colin Jahoda and his team were the first to prove that the recombination of a dermal papilla taken from a male donor was capable of inducing the production of human hair from a hairless area in a female subject. This original experiment opens up very wide avenues for research.
This invitation is addressed to new authors or to authorities already recognized internationally. Ideas and experience, together with evidence concerning technological improvements in the field, are welcome. We are open to reviewing our views on methods of measuring efficiency, and we are ready to take on the challenge of artificial intelligence by measuring its degree of autonomy in terms of ‘intelligence' to measure technological improvements in grafting sessions by robotics, to see the promising biological determinants of success, for example, the use of 3D printers, substrates or cells cultured in vitro and many more. This invitation is addressed to all colleagues who wish to share their knowledge at the international level.
All submitted papers will be evaluated by an independent peer-reviewing process in order to ensure the highest degree of scientific merit. If desirable, the editors will make comments in the form of editorial notes in connection with the best-rated works.
On top of that, a video conference will also be possible in addition to the publication and leading participants will be invited to the discussion.
We hope to find an appropriate surgical solution with colleagues who are scientifically appreciated and whose technical skills are recognized.
