Stem cell research has been one of the most investigated fields by the scientific community in the past decade. This unprecedented attention has been mainly caused by the number of possible applications of stem cells in regenerative medicine, which has created expectations of curing widespread diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and heart failure. In particular, regenerating the heart, which is one of the least regenerative organs of the body, has been an incredible challenge. However, recent discoveries have proven that also the heart is a selfrenewing organ characterized by resident cardiac stem cells (CSCs) stored in niches.
